Splice Festival

In 2015 I was sacked from a job, dumped by my girlfriend and also given notice to leave where I was living, all within a week. Pretty bleak. I decided to turn all of that negativity into something positive, distracting and useful!

I wanted to realise a long held dream of organising an audiovisual festival. Initial plans were conconcted and emails went out to the people whom I wanted to help make it a reality. After a year of hard work and commitment from a small team of directors with huge contributions from the community of artists and volunteers Splice Festival was first staged from the 3rd to the 5th June 2016: http://2016.splicefestival.com/

and one year later: http://2017.splicefestival.com/

The final year of my involvement: http://2018.splicefestival.com/

I remain very proud of what we created together and hope to see something rise from the ashes post covid.

Tim Exile CrowdJam

I first met the incredible musician and programmer Tim Exile at Hackney Film Festival. He contacted me sometime later to provide some live camera mixing for his new live stream experiment and I jumped at the chance.

We did four CrowdJam shows where the audience uploaded samples to a Soundcloud page, these samples were automagically synced to his music software with which he then improvised the entire show.

The video is Lo-Fi and as crunchy and compressed as you can get but kinda fun when the wireless head mounted camera kicks in and I play with the analogue tuning for extra glitchiness:
