This September Jmy James Kidd and I had a residency at The Basic Premise in Ojai. it was a real pleasure to host performances and also perform again. We also made visual art objects during the month and those are available to view and procure thru the end of November. you can see the art and documentation of our show Point. Bang. Point. Loop. here



ORINDAL RECORDS released the album Dispatches from the Drift on cassette and digital formats. its an hour of improvised keyboard music played during the thick of the pandemic and found later on my phone or desktop. its kind of like a found music collection. you can watch one of the walking videos I made for the song A SUNDAY 2020 and get the record HERE. you can read a thoughtful review from the Quietus HERE
