Octopus Stories

Photo by Silly Little Man The project was realised in its first incarnation in 2019 when the spine of the current team produced a response to poems written by Becci Louise of the same name. We built a production with actors, poems, and audio/visuals for the Square Tower in Portsmouth. The project was a success,…

Improvised Snooker?

On Wednesday 24th August two members of Friday Night Weird Dreams were playing snooker. One of them very badly. A distraction arrived in the shape of a message asking if there were any bands available to support The Utopia Strong at The Joiners in Southampton. Now both of these snooker enthusiasts in FNWD had witnessed…

Shortwave Transmissions

Back in September 2021 I responded to a call for submissions for a project called Shortwave Transmissions curated by Cities and Memories. The premise was to engage with a selection of shortwave radio recordings and select one to produce a new piece. The selection was vast and covered a range of geography, time and space.…

The Space Microcult

The Space Microcult is a collection recordings from 2019-2021 that function as a 90 minute piece for something like a soundtrack to 2001 Space Odyssey, but really is an insight into the psyche of @flybumsuk guitarist @jrflybum It’s a free download on bandcamp or cop a tape for a fiver with handmade, individual artwork -…

Three Tone Arm, Modular Turntable

You may have seen the build video about the modular turntable a few months ago. In recent times I seem to keep finding discarded, or broken turtables. Me being me, I have to take them in, but they really are bulky items and I don’t need 23 turntables in my house. I’ve taken to harvesting…

Keys, keys, keys

In those hours before sleep, I’ve been recently reading online about the integration of circuit bending with modular synthesis. I’m keen to explore how Eurorack could potentially orchestrate a hoard of weird and wonderful products not designed for such a task. We’ve dabbled with circuit bending before but I always found the resulting outcome to…

Nie dla wszystkich skrzypce grają

“The violin doesn’t play for everybody” – Ain’t that the truth… Before there was covid-19, before 2020, I was lucky enough to visit Poland. A nice summer holiday back in 2019 with some good friends. We visited Kraków and Warsaw and as my wife and friends completed the usual tourist requisites, my friend and collaborator,…

Confidentiality Tapes – Tony’s Wallet

You may have seen our recent series entitled “Confidentiality Tapes”, either on YouTube or Bandcamp (both still available to listen to there). You can find the whole story and rationale here. I decided to put out a high quality physical release of the series with a bit of a difference. The story revolves around the…

The Confidentiality Tapes

Microcassettes is where it began. You know, the ones you find in old answering machines and Dictaphones. During the pandemic lockdown of 2020 I became obsessed. I wanted to gather, hear and engage with any second hand microcassettes that I could get my hands on. Online auctions, charity shops, forums, friends, however from wherever –…

Friday Night Weird Dreams #16

Friday 7th August marked the return of Friday Night Weird Dreams, our improvised, and until recently, prolific group that is largely based on improvised sessions that change direction and members with each recording. It had been 10 months since we released a session, with life, a pandemic and other things getting in our way. It…
