3. Colin Woods - The Duck Feeder

"The Duck Feeder – Colin Woods, 2018.

This piece was assembled from recordings at Lough Neagh, Co. Antrim during a stay in Ireland in 2018. The MIDI instrument tracks use data extracted from processed versions of the actual audio of the water and ambient sounds. The work is from Colin Woods' forthcoming album “Compound Eye” and also has an accompanying video.

6. Vincent Giles - vgst1

vgst1 is a piece realised in Max, but built on a jam session early in 2019 with an old friend, Steve Turner. It strikes me now having to write a bit about the piece, that it is more significant than I'd initially given it credit for. Steve and I had collaborated in the mid-00s, he as a guitarist and I as a bassist, and coincidentally and for different reasons we both ended up exploring modular synthesis. The raw audio captured in our jam is reminiscent, albeit, radically different from, the type of recording a band might do in their first sessions. In this case we were playing with gear that we were both learning and each with very different aesthetic goals. With the raw material I then fashioned it algorithmically into this piece, the significance being a key marker of the gigantic shift in aesthetic and adaptation of musical activity that I've been on since 2008.


Vincent Giles is a composer; a tinkerer with acoustic and electronic sound in the context of concert music, electronic music, installation, and performance. His work is strongly influenced by the natural world, science, and mathematics, and his music is best characterised as experimental, being built on emergent properties. He utilises traditional notation, graphics, computers, interactivity, custom instruments, and is currently interested in machine learning and other forms of artificial intelligence as part of a computer-assisted compositional practice. Vincent’s works are often structurally complex, employing what he calls polyphony of form, an emergent property of superimposed musical forms interacting in time. Together with sound artist Alice Bennett, Vincent founded and co-directs Tilde New Music and Sound Art Inc., presenting a biennial festival and new music academy. He enjoys cooking vegan food, drinking coffee, and being a recluse.
