News: I wrote a Christmas song last year, yxmass, the story of an outrageously precocious nerdy baby coming to terms with Christmas, and Ky and I made use of the delightful decorations at Ti Tree School in December to video ourselves playing it live: . I also made a video explaining the crazy morphing groove that it's in: . I've got a few gigs and festivals in Australia coming up, but otherwise, I'm focussing on recording and releasing my show, Notey and Noisy: A Sound Science Mathemusical and getting stuck into recording and releasing my slightly daunting list of unreleased songs... stay tuned!

In other news, for my friend Charlie Whiter's 33rd birthday, I wrote a song in 33, of course! Here's the song and here's a video about the groove it's in (which can fit both an 11 pulse and a 12 pulse... yeah! And check out this Risset-like trombone oddity I uploaded not long ago: . I'm also working on a few new instructional YouTube videos... nearly done! Here're some more videos from recent times: My Covid Community Health song, "Play a Part: Stay Apart". Kylie Morrigan's "Self Isolation Smile" (with me and a bunch of friends around the world). My "5 Times it's Wise to Sanitize" for Masada Hospital and the live action version. My "Risset/Shepard/Harmonic groove" (which rises and speeds up forever!). And a couple of instructional (and fun) videos: "The Loop of Silence" and "The 5/16 Delay", which I've been working up to for years and I'm super chuffed with how they've turned out. Plus Formidable Vegetable's Waste and Dom Hook's video clip for my song "Give It Up". And there's the TEDx talk I gave in Geneva in 2017.

My latest CD, "Not Nor Mal" is out now!!! Peruse, pursue and purchase it online or instore (CDs). My solo DVD "Live and Instructional" is selling nicely, as is the new Totally Gourdgeous CD, "Gourd in the Act": See the video for their single, "I Have a Dream". All my solo CDs and the Sock CD are now available for listening and/or buying from Bandcamp (what a great site) or you can buy the actual CDs from me (see CDs). My band of 32 years, the Oxo Cubans, now has some footage online... check it out on YouTube.
My latest songs include:
Pinky and Moon, Pizza Resistance, There's Never Been a Saint Kilda, The Magical Land of Away, Fool, Home Sweet Homeostasis, Pod, Giant Gippsland Earthworm, Eunice, Peak, Make Stuff Up, Osculate, Don't Kick the Clown, Imaginary and my new Christmas song, yxmass.
