NEW ALBUM “ELECTRIC MOUNTAIN”

I am currently working on my fourth album which will be called “Electric Mountain.” I am falling in love with the possibilities of electronic sound all over again, going back to my electronica roots whilst continuing to develop my vocal, composition and immersive production skills.

With my signature atmospheric sound, the theme of this album is all about the elements (fire, water etc), the natural world and how we are part of it. Inspired by climbing (which I have taken up since no longer being disabled), the ecological situation (a fierce love for planet and people) and my own experiences (I think the personal is universal as we all navigate this magical mystery tour called life).

Some recent commissions have been remixed. Lots of things have been sampled/recorded and creatively manipulated. For example jangling oven shelves, clinking climbing gear, and the gentle swish of small waves lapping on a pebble beach. Using my voice, piano, a lithophone (like a xylophone but made of slate – real rock music!) and technology, I am working hard to weave a new sound world for your nourishment.

DELIA DERBYSHIRE DAY and ELECTRONIC MUSIC EXPERT

I have set up and run this electronic music charity. The archive of Delia Derbyshire (electronic music pioneer most famous for her iconic realisation of the original Dr Who theme 1963) arrived in Manchester at the same time I did. I felt someone needed to make a fuss of this gem of electronic music heritage. DD Day produces events, new art and (electronic) music education opportunities championing women artists past, present and future.

I am often invited to talk about Delia and the history of electronic music in the UK. I also worked as a researcher on Lisa Rovner’s forthcoming feature film “Sisters with Transistors” about the pioneering women of electronic music.

I have presented talks at Synth Fest UK, Birmingham Conservatoire, Sound and Music’s Young Composers Summer School and introduced “The Shock of the Future”, a homage to the pioneering women in electronic music at Sensoria Festival (2019).
