Music with reverent, almost religious overtones Wire Magazine

His droney-church-organ shifts and scapes, together with deeply voiced singing by his silver-coated figure, made for an other-worldly experience. CCQ Magazine

Noctule from Peak/Copa on Vimeo.



Alongside artist Stefhan Caddick I did a site-specific live performance which took place underground in Eglwys Faen (Stone Church), a cave on the Llangattock Escarpement, three miles from Green Man. The piece responded to the unique acoustics, history and habitat of the cave system, one of the biggest in Europe and home to a colony of Lesser Horseshoe bats. For more info please go here.
