mo-seph

mo-seph is my solo project, mostly composed work but moving towards processed improvisation.

The Slow Descent

A journey through the hidden recesses of the mind - ambient techno explorations of bass and joy. The latest EP from mo-seph is stitched together from improvised playing into a seamless trajectory of noise and beats and glitches.

The Other Place

A collection of tracks from the last few years. Sparkling, wiggling, crunchy time signatures and dirty basses.

Growth and Form

A continuous piece of music, sliding from one imaginary landscape to another.

The breadth of styles and influences absorbed is spectacular… Download both, get ‘em on your mp3 player and set course for the middle of nowhere… real fucking wow music.” Liam Arnold, Team Little Rock / Shallow Rave on Growth and Form and The Other Place

Somos Nanas

Tense, unsettling electronics and vocals, edited together from a series of live performances and studio improvisations between me and Josie Davis in the summer of 2009.

Raw Green Rust

Raw Green Rust (formerly TR-I/O-FON) has been playing as an improvising laptop trio since 2008, serving up humorous abstract glitch-dub from promiscuous audio processing. We’ve played at Sonorities and been featured on Hear and Now (Radio 3). We haven’t put out a polished album yet, but in the mean time, here’s a demo:

Edimpro

Edimpro is an ongoing improvisers orchestra loosely based at the University of Edinburgh. We put out three albums while I was there, all on the Reid Label:

Kresch

Kresch is a project with Paul Keene. Mostly dormant, but some recordings still exist here.

AZIFAZIFAZIF

A collaboration with Harlequinade - ritual beats and physical performance

Mo-seph’s arrestingly tribal bass beat in AZIFAZIFAZIF is intriguingly meditative accompanied by performer Harlequinade’s animalistic chant Talila Pick, The Skinny
