This November I had the privilege to perform at Temping Failure in Bristol. It was amazing experience where I met some of the most welcoming and genuine people I've come across in my art practice. It was an intense weekend that'd left me feeling refreshed and inspired to make new work.
I did miss a few performances due to being busy performing, but I definitely recommend checking out the event and all the artists involved. A massive thanks to Thomas, Hannah, Helena, Andy and everyone that made the event a very special experience.

The performance sound scape project I am part of recently had an album put out on a short run of tapes thanks to Glasglow Label Herhalen. It has been exciting to see someone else release some of our audio pollution! Many thanks to Vickie McDonald for the Original Artwork, its great to see someone take on the aesthetics of our noises.
A month or so on and they are nearly all gone! A few extras have been printed, but now only 8 remain! Pop over to herhalen.bandcamp.com/album/retron now if you want to catch one of these orange beauties before they are gone!
This week I am at Projects:Manchester in federation house. I'm building devices to record the hidden elements of this amazing empty space. Thanks to MarkDevereuxProjects
Pretty excited to have the Space Sloth online shop filling up with new items! Mothers day gifts anyone?
This last couple of week I have been working with HipHop Producer Jan Hess on a low-fi music workstation.
Its rough looking so far, but sounds brilliant. Using the massive 8Bit power of arduinos, and some audio magic from Mr Hess, this machine is shaping up to be probably the most intensively designed piece of electronics I have worked on.
Currently it has : 6 Track Sequencer (4 Drums ,2 Synth), Up to 64 Step Patterns, Midi in & out. MPC style workflow, and super lowfi 8-Bit power!
We will be launching the finished article at SuperByte 2014 in Manchester. Watch this space!
Ben is in up in Manchester for some Synthetic Life Group recording. Getting ready to make them noises!!
