Dusted off the guitar I made in 2007 and decided to have a go one of my favourite Palace tunes. Disorder comes from the 1996 album ‘Arise Therefore’ Which is a beautiful melancholic and sparse record with some of Will’s best lyrics of all time.
I recorded the music with two very old mic’s that I’ve been getting into lately. The voice uses an old BBC STC 4035 from the 1950′s and the guitar a 1970′s AKG lapel mic which is labelled BBC Radio Paris.
I just saw the same mic hanging around Dudley Moore’s neck during his duet with Cilla Black – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxgHypEdeEU

Just wanted to point you towards your radio on Friday night 10pm Fri 26th Oct. I’ll be on Ian McMillan’s radio 3 show the verb talking about the letter Q and playing a
piece of music I made out of lots of you lovely people speaking.
Thanks a million to all the people who submitted recordings, there is a full list of people below. If you don’t appear it’s because you didn’t submit your name or I accidentally missed you of the list (please let me know and I’ll put it right). I’ll email all the contributors who supplied me with an email address the finished track in the next couple of days.

I’m making a piece of music for BBC radio 3′s the Verb show and I’d like to assemble a large chorus of people speaking in morse code. I need your help – All you have to do is record yourself speaking the letter ‘Q’ followed by the words:
EDIT: Thanks for all the entries, I’ve started work on the music now so entries are not closed.
if you like you can then follow that with your favourite word beginning with the letter Q.
You can record directly onto your computer by clicking the “Send Voicemail” button which is on the right hand side of the screen >>>>>>>>>
Or you can email me the recording & tell me how you’d like to be credited.
I think the show goes out on 24th October.
CROW opens in one week!
It’s been well over a year since I started work on the music for CROW, and soon it will be ready. I have made over an hour of new music for the show and been totally inspired by Director Mervyn Millar, the cast, and all the other creatives on the project.
I can guarantee you will never have seen a Theatre / Dance / Poetry / Music thing like this before.
I hope you can make it to Greenwich, London for what I think will be a very special piece of theatre.
The run is 18th Jun 2012 – 7th Jul 2012
What is CROW?
Ted Hughes’s Crow poems are among the most powerful and vital of the last 50 years. He called them ‘my masterpiece’. Multi-award-winning Handspring Puppet Company gives them new life as an unforgettable dance theatre performance.
You can get tickets HERE
In what turned into something of an epic interview I think we touched on nearly everything I have done in music and art in the last decade.
It’s split into 3 sections:
Just finished the final set of Workshops on Crow and noticed a preview of it on the BBC It’s an amazing process I am learning a lot while making the music for this.

The BEAM Festival presents BEAM NIGHT, a special one-off taster event held at café OTO. BEAM is a playground of homemade instruments and sonic installations and was devised by Artistic Director Sarah Nicolls to explore the physicality of electronic music. The focus on electronic music being created LIVE is explored through a programme of performances, demonstrations, installations and workshops.
The acts tonight all use unusual and/or homemade interfaces to perform. Atau Tanaka & Adam Parkinson play iPhones as sensitive, handheld controllers; Bruno Zamborlin performs café OTO’s wall – possibly for the first time?! – with his invention, Mogees, which read gestural language on any surface; Marco Donnarumma’s Music for Flesh is a visceral sensor performance using his instrument system Xth sense, which has just been named “the world’s most innovative new musical instrument” and awarded First Prize at the Guthman Musical Instrument Competiton in Atlanta (http://bit.ly/yiHBu6). Tom Bugs (maker of Bugbrand synth products) appears in a rare performance using his Modular synths and also sets up a mini-installation for the night, whilst the beguilingly creative Leafcutter John conjures up soundscapes with his new explorations in light and sound.
