Glasgow – Secret West End Location

Capacity for each event is very limited but all attempts are made to make the shows as inclusive and welcoming as possible. Events are open to people of all ages, there are no guestlists and no costs either, meaning all ticket sales are passed directly to the artists. The venue location will be revealed to ticket holders 48 hours prior to the event. Elitism and snobbery discouraged, positive vibes thoroughly encouraged...


This Saturday – 25 April 2013 – Cafe OTO

I’ll be playing a set of solo synthesizer at Cafe OTO this saturday on a bill with the percussionist Eli Keszler and violinist Jennifer Allum. They are both great so should be a good one.  Tickets are £7 adv or £8 on the door.

With any luck i’ll get something rigged up for some quasi quadraphonic/multiple speaker diffusion…

Concert in Milano, Italy – 22 June 2011

Looking forward to my first ever concert in Milan on 22nd June 2011. It will be #18 in The Lift series. Seats are very limited, so if you want to come you need to confirm by writing to liftthe@yahoo.it – The Lift is close to Piazzale Loreto-Viale Monza in Milano (MM1 stop Rovereto), the exact address is contained in the booking confirmation.

“The Lift ha luogo all’interno di un piccolissimo studio di registrazione.
Musicisti, sound artists, ricercatori sonori e liutai sono invitati a
presentare il proprio lavoro in un ambiente acusticamente accurato.”

“Sound is spherical, round. There’s a risk of listening to it only as height and duration. But it is not as we believe it is. Sound is round and spherical. All spherical things have a center, you must reach the heart of sound. Sound has a heart, as spherical it has a center, the center of its heart. You have to arrive at that center, only in this way we become musicians, otherwise we are craftsmen. A craftsman of music is a very respectable figure, but you are not a real musician nor a true artist, but a craftsmen of art or music. You have to go to the heart’s sound” Giacinto Scelsi http://soundcloud.com/liftthe/giacinto-scelsi
