Had some really nice comments about "studio drama": thank you! Head to Bandcamp to download or listen...
August: Glasgow! So excited.
But this week: London!
I had to write a reflective journal for the MRes. It's quite rambly, but have a read [if you like].
Running very low on mallets! If you'd like to help me get some, please buy my music: many thanks for any support!
A day of admin and writing. Nice not to be travelling for a bit...
At Long White Cloud far too early... come say hello!
Summery[?] improv from an autumn gig: me and my bro Dave Kane!

Bloomsday: Joyce alludes to the strength of the rebel against dominant forces
Today's musical lesson: Dedication.
This morning certainly requires some fresh mint tea.
My bro Dave Kane and I will be in Manchester this Saturday afternoon!
Writing music on staves, for relaxation. The course has driven me to strange habits.
Reading through my treatise for the course. Constantly moving target.
In just over twelve hours!
Wow! John Rylands Library is a lovely place. Can't wait to fill with sound!
Did I mention how good it was playing with Dave Kane today? No? Well, it was AMAZING. Such a good time in Manchester #openlivingmusic
Small update to my MRes mini-site, especially on the reflections page!
First time using a video camera, filming bits for my MRes project. Ridiculously stressful!
To Nottingham! Working with Nottingham Jazz Steps with two schools, creating new collaborative work.
Wow!! Great couple of sessions in Notts: lovely to see young children really engage with improvising and arranging. Buzzing!
Procrastinating from cooking by wondering if I can indeed listen to too much Wayne Shorter. I may go hungry tonight.
No—wait—I can hear it from the kitchen! Silly me. So the answer's definitely "no".
New Ramble: Something pin on the wall from Chinua Achebe
Family-friendly music project is now slightly more real, thanks to Arts Council England!! :)
Off to Nottingham again today for the Nottingham Jazz Steps schools improv project!
Today is a glock day!
