February 2016 – New Year, New Music

I’ve kinda fallen out of the habit of keeping this web site up to date. Not really a big surprise if you know how I’m like during these bloody winter months, I’ve not been a fan of them in years. Luckily this year hasn’t been so overbearing so I’ve managed to come up with some new tunes! Nothing solid has been completed yet, but I’m currently working on a number of different solo-based projects as… Continue reading

In The Gentle Breeze – 25.11.15

I’ve been trying a more minimal approach to the way I jam out some songs lately, trying to make it just about the guitar instead of bringing in any outside elements. This song, In The Gentle Breeze, is just an example of that, and is something I’m going to be trying to do more of as (eventually) part of my song-a-day project. Which I will be undertaking in the new year if all goes as… Continue reading

Discontent – 17.11.15

So I’ve been trying to get back in the habit of making YouTube videos, and in particular composing some small scale songs specifically for uploading to these social sites. This way I can keep releasing music for free while I also spend time composing albums and recording other bands. You know, because I run a recording studio as well (www.okzygenstudios.com). The websites pretty messed up right now, but I’ll be spending some time working on… Continue reading

Unboxing Disaster Inverted

The first copies of Disaster Inverted have arrived! They just got in a couple days ago, received 100 and they’re already going! I’m gonna be selling my copies ahead of the official release date, which is November 13. After that they will be available through many different providers, and perhaps a few locations around Peterborough. I’m also looking into getting a couple shows in the near future, one or two in the first few months… Continue reading

Somewhere Cold – October 2015

Hey everyone! I’m excited. Are you excited? You should be, because we’re less than three weeks away from Disaster Inverted being released! To help stir attention for the EP, I’ve recorded a play-through video of one of the songs off of it. You can check out the video on YouTube as well as the player above. I’ve been keeping myself busy here at Okzygen Studios the last few weeks, which is a nice change of… Continue reading

Riffage: Disaster Inverted

Hey everyone, got a new video for ya. I go through one of the riffs you’ll find on Disaster Inverted, and talk a bit about the future plans for the channel as well as the EP itself. I’ve decided to kinda overhaul my social media, and a big part of that is my YouTube channel, which over the years has suffered quite a bit due to my inactivity. So over the next few weeks I’m… Continue reading

Immortal Coil and The Monotribe (July 2015)

Apparently I can make videos much quicker than I used to think. This is the third video in about 3 weeks time, and hopefully this keeps up the way it’s going. The new one (you know, the one up there above) is a simpler video, showing off the KORG Monotribe as I lay down a track for the new version of Immortal Coil. The Monotribe is this cool little analog ribbon synth that has a… Continue reading

The Welcoming Sound Of Ice (July 2014)

It seems I’ve gone and made another video. After that last one, I started feeling good about the new things I’m able to do with my video program of choice. And I kinda enjoyed how the song itself turned out too I guess. So last week I sat down and started working on a new song, based around looping a few guitar pieces, creating a layer of atmospheric sounds, and then took it from there.… Continue reading

Protagonizar (June 2015)

It’s been a while since I’ve made a video of sorts, so last weekend I sat down and wrote this little tune. It was all pretty much improvised, just recorded a run, and using that take constructed the song around it. I’m gonna try and make more of these more often, as I’m gonna find more free time on my hands. I’ll be dedicating more time in general to the creation of music, whether it… Continue reading

May’s End, 2015

Hey everyone, thought I’d make another update to round off the month. The website’s still growing, as I slowly collect all the pieces of music and productions I’ve made and collect them together. It’s been interesting to say the least, going back to all my old recordings, listening back and thinking to myself, why did I ever allow these creations to be heard by anyone else in their current state. But this journey along time… Continue reading
