Slowly adding my personal collection to discogs... as and when I play them. It's 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 a few more crates to go! I still find it hard to conceptualise music that I cannot hold in my hand. Non-physical carriers have an ephemerality that I cannot appreciate, unless I am travelling and need to be light.
I make music influenced short films and video art. They are often performance-based with lots of electronic manipulation.
I take lots of photographs.
