"I currently live in Glasgow, at the moment figuring
out life, music and relationships. It's interesting
for sure. I have been making experimental music on
whatever equipment was available to me since the late
eighties and Dissolved is an on going outlet for that
music, releasing to the net since 1999. Just now I
crave a pet salamander and a digital SLR and I enjoy
seeking out unheard musical treasure on the net, most
of it far better than published output."
