About Me

I am active musician in the London free improv scene, occasionally playing at venues such as the Vortex, Battersea Arts Centre, Cafe Oto. I have released CD's via my own label, citystream; with 'Splatter', Niko Meinhold, Alberto Popolla, 'Uncle Rabbit', the 'Improvising Clarinet Ensemble' and solo and group releases on net labels - Headphonica and Clinical Archives. I run a monthly evening of free improvisation and experimental music called the 'Luna Fringe' in North East London. I like to collaborate with other musicians, and chief among them at the moment are members of my groups - 'Splatter'(Anna Kaluza, Pedro Velasco Michael Caratti and Tom Greenhalgh).and Redstart (Benedict Taylor and Noura Sanatian). Splatter's CD 'Music for Misanthropes' is released on January 5th, 2010 at CDBaby.com.
