I used to own a music stall in Camden market, London, many years ago, from which my username derives.

Very slowly adding my personal collection to discogs... as and when I play them. It has become my excuse to best explore the nooks and crannies.

I have extremely varied tastes, from cheesy pop to sound art, from the medieval to contemporary. I'm wedded and mostly faithful to physical media, with a Discogs bias towards vinyl, in as much as that’s the only format even close to completely added - just 8 more crates to go! Cassettes are all added now, but I only ever bought a handful in the first place. CDs still 1000s to go...

I enjoy being able to hold my collection in my hands. Non-physical carriers have an ephemerality that can only be appreciated while travelling.

I make music influenced short films and video art. They are often performance-based with lots of electronic manipulation.
I take lots of photographs.
