  • Yellow Tara Mandala
    Saturday, 19/05/2018


    Yellow Tara Mandala – A week long practice, created and led by Jill Purce where around 70 people become a living, rotating Mandala… (This is a piano duet – meaning 2 pianos…)

    00:00 – I go along as my usual self and on the train to the venue – I wonder if I’ll be able to “get into it.” As soon as I’m there though, there’s an itness about the place that suspends rational thought without me having to try. I love these people because as different as we all are in occupation, beliefs and personality – we all find some purpose in conspiring to realise this unusual project.
    00:34 – “Thank you for your love, Oh, thank you for your love, Oh, thank you for your love, Oh, thank you for your love…” – My body seems to be tuning into this different mode of seeing – which feels

  • Next One…

    Here’s the next video – I prefer these ones that seem to emerge out of that artistic technique of simply casting around for what might be there – instead of attempting to impose empirical order onto what you logically believe to be there… So this is all completely speculative, all observation and “common sense” – but I wanted to tell you – the practice of asking for Mercury’s help – actually asking him – is massively underrated! Because as with playing or writing music – the process of recording this was like… um… not thinking too much and just projectile vomiting glass marbles – anyone else get that?

     




  • Conversations With The Sun From Scotland
    Monday, 29/01/2018



    This is trying to capture a 3 dimensional sense of walking down the East Sands in St. Andrews at twilight and the way the light bounces off the water and the wet sand, along with the stars and the streetlamps and all that. Meditation seems to have changed the music I’m hearing in my head, as time goes on – but I did want to create another piano duet for the two hubristic youngsters required to play that last one – may as well write a concert’s worth, right?
    Lots of love to you, thanks for visiting this site…




  • Short Story 4/ 5…
    Saturday, 25/11/2017


    This is a short story about talking to plants… It is fictitious – just a thought experiment, innit? Trying out alternative explanations for accepted phenomena, as an exercise…
    [I want to relax out of the trifling miscellany of day to day life. Can you please take me on a walk round a human-centric gallery of The Divine? I’d love that. In return, I’ll pass on anything of importance that you show me…]
    [[You think that space and time are requirements of movement but actually movement is a requirement for space and time – it’s that way round. It was consciousness moving that formed the dimensions of physical existence.]]
    [See this is what I love about you – you don’t mess around with smalltalk.]
    [[No function for it.]]
    [So let me get this straight – the vibrating energy that constitutes all things… is also cranking out time? And also cranking

  • TV (Abstract Thought #3)
    Saturday, 4/11/2017


    1. Television, transmitted to children is a kind of technicolour robbery of their past, present and future.
    1.1 Past – it denies them the traditional stories, shaped over generations to explain reality in a way that has been proven to reliably raise children into functioning adults. In the place of these are commercial algorithms, cynically devised to coerce individuals into economic transactions which benefit their elders at the obvious expense of their own mental health.
    1.2 Present – The gift of knowing anything through television is paid for by the cost of not having it in reality – theft by transmission. This superimposition of false and unassuageable needs – draws more of a person’s consciousness away from their perception of the present, which is therefore physically classified by the body as unsatisfactory – and into the permanent pursuit of the unreal. The physical trigger for this chase is a
