Now you can sing into your hairbrush when you get ready for the live shows coming up next month. This is how I get my studio tan – by remixing Kate Bush. A chance meeting of the minds lead to this jaunty little version of the sensual slow-burner from the wonderful Aerial album. You might know the track, but you’ve never heard it quite like this before.
Or how to make an oil painting in two minutes. Just film 3 weeks’ work and speed it up! Is it blasphemy or bondage? See more here.
This week I had two videos pulled from YouTube. People were claiming to be me and trying to get credit for my remix and the little movie I made to go with it. I was going to leave them to it, flattered that they liked my stuff, but then I remembered the mountain of work involved in completing both the video and the soundtrack. And none of this was for personal gain – just a tribute to my favourite band. For a humble fan-mix, it’s certainly caused some trouble…

"wild and fun" "evocative and beautiful" "absolutely stellar work"
My remix for Goldfrapp’s Drew got some glowing reviews, so I couldn’t resist making a video to go with it. The original song is haunting and nostalgic, and I added a grandfather clock, an oboe and mandolin. Happy memories and lost time are the main themes here in my short film, and I combine found footage with a visit to the Norfolk holidays of my childhood.
