Dear friends,

I’m excited to share some music that is very special to me. It’s a compilation that I curated of super rare and never-before-released recordings by a musical hero of mine, Jean-Jacques Perrey (1929-2016).

This release focusses on Jean-Jacques’ playing of the French proto-synthesizer, the Ondioline, an unusually expressive electronic instrument with a... View more »

If any of you have been getting into Jean-Jacques Perrey's music recently, here's a sweet reissue of his classic LP Moog Indigo that just came out.

Looking forward to playing a number of these songs at the tribute show I'm presenting at Moogfest on May 18!

A largely unheralded legend of music history passed over the weekend.

Founder of the Ace Tone and Roland companies, Ikutaro Kakehashi's influence on contemporary music production really can't be overestimated.

This Fact magazine article has a short overview of his life and work.

One of the most gorgeous listens I've enjoyed recently is this compilation, Kindred Spirits, released to celebrate Piano Day 2017.

Out on Spirit Level, the label I founded with Tim Shiel (whom some of you may know as my sample-slinging sideman in the Gotye live band), the compilation features new pieces from Evelyn Morris (aka Pikelet), Braille Face, and a wonderful... View more »

5pm this evening New York time I'll be joining Irwin Chusid on his WFMU radio show to celebrate the music of Jean-Jacques Perrey.

I've been feeling sad since Jean-Jacques passed away only very recently. In recent years he became a friend of mine, and he was to have flown to New York to attend a tribute show I'm producing next Tuesday at National Sawdust.

I've found that playing his music... View more »

Hello friends,

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written at greater length. I’m sorry for that. Today, unfortunately, it’s because I have sad news.

We’ve lost a long list of luminaries this year, but the saddest for me is the recent passing of Jean-Jacques Perrey, a visionary of alternative pop music, pioneer of wildly rhythmic tape-edit sampling techniques and sole virtuoso of the... View more »

At 5pm NY time today I'm joining Irwin Chusid on the excellent WFMU radio for a full hour.

I'll be spinning rare tracks by a musical hero of mine, Jean-Jacques Perrey, and talking about work I've been doing recently in his archive.

We'll also discuss the Ondioline - the incredible electronic musical instrument of which Jean-Jacques was the sole virtuoso - and projects I've got coming up that... View more »

Kōya, the debut album from Braille Face has just come out!

Every corner of this record has something wonderful to discover, rhythmically and texturally. But it's the tender melodies, floating on such sublime vocals that tie everything together.

To Where We Sink is a highlight for me, but the thread of this whole album demands unabridged listening.
