This has been a good year for me in musical terms. I’ve discovered Ableton Live, various other audio software and acquired a nice MIDI keyboard controller to compliment my guitar hardware.
I’ve discovered a love of electronic music and ambient sound-scapes but perhaps the best thing of all has been the warm and supportive community of like minded people making electronic and experimental music out there.
I got talking to oh/ex/oh on twitter a couple of weeks ago. I was struck by the similarity in the paths we are treading despite being separated by the Pennines. He’s on the Manchester side. I’m on the Sheffield side. I have to say I absolutely love his music. He released an album called Extant on The Geography Trip on 21 December 2012 which you can find here http://thegeographytrip.bandcamp.com/album/extant
He also has a website here www.ohexoh.com/
I was delighted to find he has included me in a mix of his favourite found sounds which you can listen to on his Mixcloud page here http://www.mixcloud.com/ohexoh/broadcast-4-the-found-sounds-of-2012/
