Haven't covered any audio yet so heres a few bits that are floating my boat.


Lush sounds from Leeds resident Joe Gilmore here. Alp is "
13 tracks of post-digital minimalist music composed between 2000–2003". 2 of the tracks (PSR 1937+21.1 + PSR 1937+21.2) use
recordings of pulsar stars as their source material and evolved from Das Gestern – Ein Interstellarer Bruckenschlag an installation with Marco Reidel in Munich. Joe also contributes to Vend who have released through Line. Vend will also be touring Japan imminentley: details here.

Team Doyobi
Joe's collaborator in Vend, Alex Peverett is also one half of Sendai/Hulls very own Team Doyobi. A new 7" Wheels of Anterion features an amazing cover from Leed illustrator Olli Redding and is to be followed shortly by a new album - The Kphanapic Fragments.

Rob Hubbard

Whilst on the subject of 8 bit sonics and hull i gotta put a mention in for a true love of mine Rob Hubbard. I dont know of any new releases by him but who cares when most of his 1980s game music compositions are
available online.
During the home computing craze of the 1980s Rob created dozens of amazing soundtracks to Commodore 64 games utilising the full range of its revolutionary SID chip.

Thalamus 1986

To play his tunes you'll wanna grab a copy of Sidplay - i dont know of any mac based player at this time - if anyone does - gimme the heads up...
Classics to look out for include - Delta, Sanxion and The Human Race.
