I've uploaded an archive of pictures taken at the Solar Eclipse festival near Lusaka in Zambia in 2001. I took them while touring with Zion Train.
One more piece of work from the dusty hard-drive of my old iMac. 'Persistence of Vision' was an exhibition I did about Victorian optical toys. On the Web site there is an interactive version of a Phenakistiscope.
I've found a copy of the Web site that I did to support the 'Birmingham Frequencies' CD-ROM that came with the Higher Intelligence Agency / Biosphere album of the same name. To quote the introduction text:
"Birmingham frequencies is a record of an event which took place in Oct '97, within the sublime circular rhythms of Birmingham's modern architectural classic - The Rotunda. the second best loved structure in Birmingham after King Kong."
It was a great event to be involved in and I still think the music and multimedia work stands up to this day.
While scanning through my old iMac I came across loads of pictures from some of my previous creative activities.
I'm going to progressively upload them to my Flickr account, starting with this set of Hawkwind pictures taken at a show Zion Train did in support of them at the Sanctuary in Birmingham in 2002. I was supplying visuals for ZT on the night. So, if you fancy a ride on the 'Silver Machine' then visit this gallery...
My overriding memory of the band was how 'Spinal Tap' they were back-stage. Arguments, groupies, drink etc. True rock-and-roll stars.
A great discovery on my old iMac, I took this bunch of pictures at a show The Shamen did on the opening night of The End nightclub in London in 1996.
I'm trying to think, but this may have been The Shamen's last live set - it was certainly near the end of their career.
The music on the night was taken from the album 'Hempton Manor'. I remember we recorded it and put some or all of it on the Web site, or maybe we did a live Webcast. It was a long time ago :-) I took the pictures on my old Apple 'QuickTake 100' digital camera - hence the low quality.
