Signal Chain

Signal Chain

For the last few months, I've been making music as part of a collaboration called Signal Chain with photographer Oliver Holms.

The collaboration was a limited-run pop-up newsletter where we would bouce off each other's creative work. I would send a piece of music, Oliver would then send a photo that he felt captured the vibe of the music, which I'd respond to with a track that I thought matched the photo, and so on.

We did ten episodes as part of season one, and the run is now complete - so now is a good time to go back and binge the whole lot (start at the bottom).

It has been a really fun experiment - putting an odd- but interestingly-shaped frame around some of my musical work, setting up a regular but not too intense deadline, giving me practice writing about my music, and deepening my friendship and collaboration with Oliver. It felt like it was just the right length too - chunky enough to be a notable piece of work, without being overbearing.

At some point I may try to get a short EP together out of the tracks and put it on Bandcamp under a pay-what-you-want pricing system or something. Look out for that.
