I created a piece for the Cities and Memory project “Sounding Nature”.
“Sounding Nature is the biggest ever global exploration of the beautiful sounds of nature, covering 55 countries with almost 500 sounds. The sounds have been reimagined by 250 artists to reflect upon the damage being done to our natural world by human-generated sounds.”
My piece can be found on the map, in Japan, and was based on a field recording of cicadas by Gabriella Disler.
If you have difficulty getting it to work or finding it, I have posted direct links to the sound files further down the page.
I have released this two-part piece on Bandcamp. A heavily pitch shifted & manipulated field recording captured outside London Bridge station.

I have some of my work playing in the Expanded Radio Weekend which starts at 7pm tonight! “A weekend of creative online radio broadcasting”.
There is a scheduled playlist which runs from 7pm to 12:30am and repeats Saturday, Sunday and Monday. During the daytime, the show randomly selects tracks from submissions.
I have contributed a set of field recordings, music and sound art, this is scheduled for 22:32 each evening (I think). After the weekend I will also make my tracks available for download on this website.

Walking along the River Lea and under a bridge while experiencing Lisa Hall’s “Walking With Crickets” as part of a field recording workshop with Matt Parker. Captured with a (borrowed) pair of Roland CS-10EM binaural microphones. I’ve no idea what the mysterious tones at the beginning were!
I hope to start posting soon. In the meantime, have a look at the “about” page!
