Happy 2016! Start the machines.

Good evening all. I am in the midst of putting the finishing touches on the Zombies 1985 score and companion piece as I sit here & catch up with you. Hope you all had a luscious holiday season and are ready to make a beautiful racket this year. Looking forward to NAMM this month of…Continue Reading

Win Tara’s MOOG SUB PHATTY signed by Gary Numan and Tara…Plus a shiny nasty new cover of CARS!

I hope you’re excited. To make a long story short, I wound up with two Sub Phattys as I was preparing for the UK / EU string of dates (which start tomorrow in Liverpool). Then, after booking the Gary Numan support shows in London & LA, we decided it was time to do something nice…Continue Reading

Hooray! Today marks the digital release of our soundtrack to our short film, THE SILENCE. Shot in 2011 in Cardiff, UK, this film was made possible by partial funding by the Welsh Arts Council and the infinite patience of our cast (Gareth Milton) and crew. Here it is on iTunes. VINYL PREORDER HERE. Maf &…Continue Reading

Just say yes to Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith!

I received an email from Moog Music this morning containing one rather swoon inducing video of one Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and her Buchla Music Easel. She has an album forthcoming very soon, but I thought I’d share this with you until we can get our hands on some more of her work. Beautiful! From Moog:…Continue Reading

Incoming…. 2015!

I’ve just returned home after a long, long holiday stint in North Carolina – it was wonderful after all this time to see family and play what was my “high school hometown” as well! So! we had the pleasure of joining forces with the mighty Bob Moog Foundation for the Neighborhood Theater show in Charlotte….Continue Reading

I Speak Machine plays the BFI’s “Don’t Panic” Sci-Fi series in Milton Keynes THIS FRIDAY!

Greetings! I have rather cleverly waited till it is 2 hours before I have to leave for the airport to tell you about all this…but we will be screening three of our films at the British Film Institute’s “Don;t Panic” science-fiction series in Milton Keynes at the MK Gallery, December 5th at 7:30! Here’s the…Continue Reading

Download my ‘Dirty Soul’!

I just remembered, I mentioned on Twitter that I would go into a wee bit of detail about how I made this song. I’m always forever & ever interested in how we all create, so hopefully you’ll find this fun. Well, it’s nothing crazily complex, but it is my own special brew (honestly, nothing I…Continue Reading

ARP 2600 love with Bob Moog Foundation’s Marc Doty!

I feel a bit nostalgic for the times I used to post every day on this blog – and Mr. Doty’s videos do make me want to post more ‘religiously’. I keep up with his awesome synth tutorials (well, they’re really too good to be categorized as “tutorials”, but my vocabulary is limp today) and…Continue Reading

Modular Master Classes by Benge & Daniel Miller…lush stuff.

We’ve been in the UK working for the past few weeks, and aside from record amounts of rain and (sample worthy) howling winds, I am having a moment of down time. A friend just sent me these wonderful master classes by Mute boss & electronic music icon Daniel Miller. AND another clip by Benge, who…Continue Reading

NAMM 2014 – Korg, Moog, Elektron on the wish lists…

Damn. This is surely NOT the year to be pulled away from NAMM – quite the plethora of fabulousness happening! We must mention the lovely new Moog Theremini, something quite Kubrickesque in design with many interesting, intriguing new features…purists might kick & scream (fuck’em) but I think the new features are very cool and may…Continue Reading

NAMM 2014 – First look the Moog Sub 37!

At the last minute, Maf & I were called to the UK for a bit o’ business…amidst a portable studio, a big chunk of Welsh countryside and beautifully moody weather: …hence our absence from NAMM 2014. So, I’ll do my best to stay updated with it from afar, posting the the most swoonful new creations…Continue Reading

My Mechanical Achillies….

I Speak Machine is moving at an interesting pace this week. I am now basically writing a totally new album with pieces of this involved – ispeakmachine.com password: shedied . I don’t think anything from the work I made last year will appear on this version, which is interesting – it’s as if the previous…Continue Reading

Fresh From the East..

Greetings all! Just returned from a long-ish stint at my parent’s house in the semi-remote country in North Carolina. Drenched in rural glory, cornfields, bullfrogs, fireflies and “cow moo-tels”, it was a good pause from the compression that living in LA can bring, and I got to visit my (rather enormous) family. I also managed…Continue Reading

I Speak “Machine-speak”

Currently? Attempting to Speak Machine…..

I’m redoing most of the music from I Speak Machine at the moment….and Maf thought it would be a good idea to sneak into the studio and film a few hatchlings. The lesson? At least change out of the yoga clothes… UPDATE: Now the attempt to Speak Oberheim…Maf got me again…
