(work in progress)
We’re sharing some (probs quite sketchy) work in progress from our first tiny phase of exploration on Babel’s Cupid as part of BOV’s Ferment Fortnight. Hope you can join us.
It might get loud. It might get sweaty. Or maybe it’ll just be the quickening of a pulse, the flicker of an eye, and the impossibility of turning away.
Tim’s epic sci-fi podcast serial stars Pearl Mackie, Tanya Moodie and Pippa Haywood, and is directed by Becky Ripley. It’s available as a 9-episode podcast box set for you to binge your ears on. The drama is accompanied by a series of non-drama actual-fact talks and isolated soundscapes.
If you’ve known us for a while, you might recognise a whistling bird from way back when. It’s all mixed for headphones. Go listen.
Available to buy for £notmuchatall on Bandcamp
Here’s the first fruits of our recent Sura Medura residency in Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka: a short album of kinda retro electro tunes made entirely out of field recordings made on the island. Birds? Sure. Bread vans? Yes of course. Monkeys? You BET. Endless honking traffic? Don’t be daft.
Play it loud for your ears and maybe buy a small copy sure why not.

Team MAYK: “Some colleagues in Canada do this thing called Thought Residencies. We talked to them about us trying it out in the UK. Do you want to do a Thought Residency? No pressure.”
Team Sleepdogs: “Er, ok. Why not? Sure.”
We’ve been recording occasional, brief thoughts over November. Check out the sound files here.
BBC Wales commissioned 5 short audio plays, each set in a specific location, to be mixed in 360° sound. Tim set his one down the pub, obvs. It’s directed by Mair Bosworth and stars Alice Lowe and David Hargreaves. It’s only 5 minutes long and it’s available on BBC iPlayer for a little while. Best on headphones. Besty best on headphones, in the pub.
The brilliant Mayfest Radio got us in to chat music and influences for their Music Is My Radar slot. In between us blathering on, there are some EXCELLENT tunes. I promise. And also some terrible Brazilian chips pop.
It’s here for your ears, on Mixcloud
And whilst you’ve got your ears in receive mode, Tim’s band Angeltech have beautiful sounds available here.
