Western Canadian Shows this Week and a New Remix


I’m finally emerging from my cave on Buffalo Mountain and breaking my radio silence.  I’ve had an incredibly inspirational time up here at the Banff Centre for the Arts this month – had my orchestral clarinet debut during a performance of Richard Reed Parry’s gorgeous piece “Music for Heart and Breath”, got very lucky with my roommate who happens to be a fantastic baker, as well as the conductor of the Tel Aviv Opera and took a breathtaking tiny plane ride through the Rocky mountains which was incredible for the first half, even if I did spend the second half trying very hard not to throw up from the motion sickness.

Western Canadian Shows

The Western Canadian dates are coming this week, including the first Calgary show since my 2013 Sled Island show was cancelled in the floods.  Vancouver folks – please take note that the 21st show has moved to Merge, and that there’s a whole extra show happening on Sunday 23rd, too!  I’ve had my head immersed inside a boiling creative cauldron for the last month, so expect lots of hot new material!

Last month I had the pleasure of working on a remix for the German electronic artist Allie – I worked on the track Mamase, and in his own words “you made it darker than the original, i didn’t think that’s possible!” have a listen:

on Bandcamp: https://verydeeprec.bandcamp.com/album/allie-remixed
or Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2esL5yJ

If you don’t already know Allie, you should check his stuff out online – “Body Poetry” has been one of my all-time faves since I heard it live in Braunschweig in 2011

New Video on its way VERY SOON

Over the closing of the summer in Montreal I worked with Nick Schofield and Alexia Avina on a new video for the Go On track “Unfazed” – there’ll be a premiere online, soon – keep your noses pinned here for more of the newest news.



Mountain Times

Happy Post-Equinox!

First off – thanks to everyone who came out to the shows in Atlantic Canada earlier this month.  The whole trip was a real treat, and I am now much better at axe throwing and blueberry picking than I used to be. Extra special thanks to Snowblink (who put out this really sweet/clever/creepy video) and Forward Music Group for putting everything together.  I’m about to embark on a special exploratory musical adventure in the Rocky Mountains on Sunday and have some Western Canadian shows coming up after that, BUT FIRST, I’ll be playing with some friends and trying out some new instrumental material in the next couple of days at Pop Montreal.

Pop Montreal Shows

My ambient instrumental alias Tim Crabtree (confusing, I know) will be playing an improvised electric guitar set at Empire Exchange tomorrow at 3pm.  It’s a free show, come down early and fall asleep with me!  During this year’s festival I’ll also be accompanying a fantastic artist new to the scene in Montreal, Camille Delean – her first show is sold out, the second is on a first come, first served basis so again, get down early!  Please take extra note of the event times, as some of these are afternoon shows, and they will all start right on time.

Banff Centre Residency

Like the true gnome that I am I’ll be retreating into the mountains this Sunday for a month of exploration.  I’ve been selected for a residency at the incredible Banff Centre for the Arts in the Albertan Rockies.  There are quite a few things on the menu for me – finishing the new album, working on orchestrations and some sad dance music, but the place is a hive for amazing creative people, and I’m excited to see what collaborations will come about in my time there.

I’m hugely grateful and excited for this opportunity, and cannot wait to get started.  On that note, I should probably go and pack,
