ATHEIST ADVENT IS OVER

December 26, 2012

Thanks for listening to Atheist Advent!

The last few songs are up, including some guitar work of which I’m rather proud, intended to give all those family gatherings across the Christian world a wee bit of extra lubrication for the end run; and my surprise at finding I can sing overtones.

Songs for late December 2012

December 20, 2012

Just posted up three more songs on Atheist Advent 2012

www.atheistadvent.com

After a disturbed songwriting week I’m now getting back into the swing of things. I look forward to the last week of AA more than anything else in the year, as it’s when the ideas that were buried under the middling ideas I’ve used up finally get aired.

These latest three are a bit ropey, I guess, but I hope there’s some good stuff to follow. Of course, it’s not up to me, but god.

Happy Atheist Advent

December 4, 2011

Here’s a new song for today’s Atheist Advent, about some troubling incident at sea. I don’t know where, if anywhere, this plot line will go.

Atheist Advent 2011

December 2, 2011

I’ve started this year’s Atheist Advent! Two songs up so far, and a third currently in my head and about to be recorded. The third one is not exactly the po-faced nu-folk that I normally prefer to write. I’m not going to do much writing on this blog this year: please check out

and you can subscribe on iTunes off that page too. I’m podcasting more than filming this year. I don’t know why I got so fixed on film when music is so unarguably about sound.

for songs, chat and discussion. But I’ll come back here from time to time, certainly.

Happy Atheist Advent.

17 December: The Eye at the Window

December 17, 2010

I want to talk about what I have in mind for this song but I better not in case it affects listening pleasure. Of course, it might improve listening pleasure. But this is a risk we have to take.

No studio MP3 for this one, sorry to say, for reasons explained here.
