31.01.17: New album - The Extinct Suite released date 06.03.2016
A reinterpretation of the more ambient and orchestral elements of ‘Tender Extinction’. Not a remix by any means, some familiar passages are woven together with additional pieces to create a suite of instrumentals lasting over 55 minutes as one single track. Ordering directly from Bandcamp is the most effective way of supporting the artist and will ensure you a signed physical copy (by request) as well as digital audio downloads of the entire album in various choices of format and a digital 'brochure' of the album artwork. Alternatively a digital download only may be purchased thus avoiding any shipping costs. Pre-orders now available
Due to the limit of file sizes on Bandcamp the download version has been divided into two tracks, Part 1 & Part 2. This version will therefore not be as one continuous piece but instead split into two parts at a suitable point in the recording. To acquire one continuous recording please purchase the CD version. The download version will be included with your CD purchase.
Tasters from the album can be auditioned at sonicyard

12.08.15: photo book in print
I have completed a photo book to be published later this year. It contains 170 images consisting mostly of monochrome prints, but also colour and a selection of Polaroids. Some texts by myself appear in the book as well as a contribution from Yukihiro Takahashi who has produced the book via his Hints Music publishing company. He and I together wanted to make the images that have been featured online (as well as others never before published) available in an art book format. The book is compact and beautifully presented by Japanese designer Keiji Terai and is being printed and manufactured in Japan and will be available to purchase worldwide. More details will be announced soon.
