In a perfect world we would give all our music away for free and survive on touring revenue, merchandising and licensing income. Alas this is not always possible. In order to eat we have to sell a few CD’s. The good news is that much of our catalog has been released under this creative commons license http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0 We have made many Antiqcool songs free to download for a reason, we want you to… Continue

I have been working on how to utilise Simon Blackmore's experimental coded system that can trigger individual rhythms by tapping out a simple binary code with two sticks.

As a dancer, I see music and all of the shapes, lines, spaces and synergies within the moving music molecules. Jerry Leake’s “Cubist” CD sparks combustible creative energy, the context of which changes every time I encounter it … like “Aldebaran,” which starts with a ‘big bang’ on the tam tam, simple glass chimes, flows into jingles of hanging and Tibetan bell choruses, balafon, vibraphone and glockenspiel interludes, and timbres of low log drum and tabla (body shakin’) grooves.
