Just to let you know I’m finally in Music Tech Magazine for winning the Motif XS6 synthesizer! The article is in February’s edition – but in case you don’t want to buy it, the editor sent me a copy of the page, and I’ve attached it here as pdf (the whole page) and a jpeg (click to see the whole pic).
the manager of a band from New Zealand called “Pitch Black” has said I can have a go at doing a remix of a track from their new CD, “Rude Mechanicals”. If it’s good enough, it’ll appear on the band’s remix CD and as a download on music sites like iTunes and Beatport. More on that soon when I decide which track I want to have a go at….
Non-music stuff: we took Paul to see a residential school in Shrewsbury today. Absolutely amazing place. Part of a 16th century hall and estate. Class sizes are usually 2 students and one teacher – it’s for kids with autism. He sounds relatively keen on it, but we’ll have a job on convincing the education authority to pay for him. It’s around £30,000 per year!

Just came across an interesting site which gives a really good breakdown on the things you need to do these days to get your music “out there”. It’s been set up by Last FM, the music networking site, who are calling the site “Now form a band”, and has a manifesto of “The Campaign for Better Music”. Aren’t we all looking for better music? Well, hopefully this will explain….
The Campaign for Better Music is here to say: it doesn’t have to be like the old days. We’re going to show you how to produce, promote and distribute your music, without spending a load of money, and without lots of other people getting involved.
Have look for more information over at
Now form a Band….
No post for a few weeks, mainly due to family commitments, work commitments, and stuff like that. However, I’m excited right now. I’m finally going to get some tunes played on an upcoming internet radio show. More details to follow after 10pm (UK time).
In the meantime, you can get hold of all my music for free. See the previous post for details….
Some people have been asking where they can buy my music. Well, the simple answer is: you can’t. It’s all free to play/download over the internet. You can listen to it and download it, make your own compilation CDs from my tracks. As long as you don’t sell it on or pass it on as youre own, I don’t mind. I’m trying to get my music into film, tv, adverts, that sort of thing, so the more people who listen to it, maybe the more chance that some music supervisor somewhere will hear the tracks and want to use it. That’s the idea….
“mistrust music” can be downloaded here:
TV Tunes (10 tracks) at MusicFreedom (including: Dubcrazy, Paul the phone is ringing, All roads)
Making Movies (8 tracks) on MusicFreedom (including: Never Alone, Happy Birthday)
Making Movies EP on Nishi Netlabel
If you prefer me to send you a physical CD, I can send one out to anywhere in the world for just a small price to cover printing, postage and packing, with either the list of tracks that are on MusicFreedom/Myspace or a “pick and mix” selection of your choice.
Click here to contact me if you want a CD….
If anyone wants to use my music for film/tv/advert work etc., please click here to discuss your project with me. Have a look on Youtube for examples of my previous film work. I’m already signed to Candy Cover music library on a non-exclusive deal…
