Five years after the 6 of us involved in this performance experienced a nasty motorway crash, we are so happy to now release something of which we are so proud. We hope you enjoy it.

NEW LIVE MIXTAPE 'Improvised Live Remixes Mixtape' is a solo performance with laptop and electronics, improvising with recordings taken from the original tracks against a backdrop of birdsong from the Dawn Chorus album. Recorded at The Old Market in Brighton. This live mixtape is being released now to celebrate the forthcoming full live band album 'Live at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts', out 3rd May on Tru Thoughts! About this mixtape: "This was a one-off version of a solo show for a specific event, and almost the opposite of the full band show. It was in an interactive laser forest which was part of an extensive immersive VR installation at the venue. So I played back all the birdsong recordings I used to make Dawn Chorus, and over the top I improvised with a laptop and some effects pedals, creating live dub arrangements of Hidden Orchestra tracks using the recordings I made for the original album versions – combining different parts, restructuring and reorchestrating the pieces on the fly. I wanted to let the birdsong speak (Dawn Chorus was my 'birds' record), so I kept the other layers really ambient, using big echoes and reverbs and filters to shape the sounds."

'Sonic Woodland' starts today at Wakehurst, come and hear the orchestra I've hidden in this woodland glade, part of #TheWonderProject on 26-29 July and 3-6 August... Speakers hung from trees and buried in the ground send sounds and music around the glade in the same way that trees communicate through underground mushroom networks... Shrinking Space Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Hidden Orchestra Jul 19, 2018
My latest music project - 'Sonic Woodland' - is a 40-minute piece for 5 trees, and can only be heard on 26-29 July and 3-6 August in a woodland glade at Kew Gardens' Wakehurst site in Sussex (home to the world famous Millennium Seed Bank), as part of The Wonder Project.. The piece is designed to show how trees are communicating with each other through the underground fungus network attached to their roots, by moving sounds and melodies around speakers hung from trees and buried in the ground. Come and spend an evening in this amazing wild botanical garden, halfway between London and Brighton...
