Three from The Double - Demo Submission

Arthouse Electronic & Ambient

Please consider my demo submission: three pieces from my second (and completed) album, The Double, an album of of uncanny soundscapes and powerful melodicism, using a singular blend of organic and synthetic instrumentation. Working within electronic and contemporary classical musical idioms, The Double employs powerfully inventive production techniques. The Double takes its title from the short story collection by the acclaimed Australian author Maria Takolander. Three tracks on the album sample (with the author's permission) text from this collection, using text-to-speech software (used under licence). The three tracks below give a sense of the album’s style and range.

My music has been broadcast widely on ABC Radio National. (You can hear an interview with me on The Music Show here.) My work has appeared in an exhibition in the UK, and was part of an audio-visual installation at this year's Geelong After Dark event in Australia. 

The album cover art is by the Melbourne artist, Michele Burder.

I am currently completing my third album, tentatively titled The Night Editor. My day job is professor of writing & literature at Deakin University, Victoria.
