Fossil Angel is the live incarnation of my collaboration with Jamie Grimes (Coalinga / Prison / Ex-Drainland), also featuring other musicians including Andrew Bushe (Estel / Yurt) who will be joining us for our first performance next Tuesday at The Thomas House, 86 Thomas Street, Dublin 8.

Previous examples of our work together can be heard here and here. Material such as this will be played live though new material being worked on currently is likely to include slightly "heavier" and "darker" pieces.

Poorhouse Galway Screening

Review of Michael Higgins' feature film which Suzanne Walsh, Diarmuid MacDiarmada and myself performed the soundtrack for. It has been selected for this year's Galway Film Fledh, and will be playing there on Wednesday 11 July.

Jamie Grimes Collaboration

Two excerpts from an album with Jamie Grimes can be heard here and here. Musically complete, though the format, visual accompaniment and titles are yet to come. The whole thing was mostly improvised and mixed on the spot, with the post production involving no overdubs and as minimal editing as possible, the entire album recorded in around two hours on the afternoon of the 5th of May of this year.

Qabalistic Telesmatic Music

New track here.
