MotherSpeak - A South African Time Compression (55min)
A musical derivation of the infinite variety of sounds in the bushveld of Limpopo, South Africa and southern Botswana. Released worldwide on AudioBulb Recordings (UK), MotherSpeak is recorded in ultra-high definition sound with five highly contrasting tracks that range from invisible insect kingdoms to electric fence wires, Landrover engines, traces of wind, unknown underwater entities, and history. Features local resident and porter Will Mosima (spoken voice) and Vicki Hallet (Melbourne) on live clarinet. Streaming on all major platforms, a limited run of physical copies is also available.
The Holy Sea - phonograph & electronic sound (~6.5hrs)
Harvested from hundreds of pre-existing phonographic recordings of sound fx, self-hypnosis, religious rites and other musics, The Holy Sea is a five part theatrical sound odyssey loosely based on the structures of the liturgical mass. As a gradually unfolding work, it comprises a multi-channel sound experience installable in sacred venues or gallery spaces.

Thou - electronic sound, 8m
An acousmatic autobiography that follows the thread of the monomyth, otherwise known as the hero-path. Harvested from the patterns of mythological narratives across cultures, Thou embraces a fundamental storytelling structure that has survived and developed across thousands of years. Its sound material derives from a variety of manipulated sonic impulses in this world, consisting of performers, instruments, artifacts or environments of my surroundings.
