The Oneirologist

The Oneirologist was started by accident. I had been making backing tracks for Apocalypse Jazz Unit songs when I took the soundtracks for my epic film Abstract Compositions and made a new piece with them, I liked it so much I decided it should stand on its own and I created The Oneirologist around it. An Oneirologist is essentially a dream scientist and these themes of exploring the real connotations of sleep and the unconscious had pervaded my work for many years, it became a way to look at ideas around philosophy, psychology and human nature in more abstract ways. I had explored electroacoustic music and film since I was young and it made sense for all of that kind of audio-visual experimentation to fall under this new project name. I started recording many more albums and making short abstract films and eventually started performing live and have done many times since.

It is one of my favourite projects, personal but also distant, I can collaborate or do it in isolation and it can be whatever I want. I see it as an ongoing artwork and each film, release and performance is part of it. I’m never sure where it’ll go in the future. In early 2017 I released a 5DVD box set of all the films I’ve made to date and Currently I’m working on a 4 CD live album.
