Grey Frequency

Grey Frequency

Dark ambient textures, lo-fi drones and soundscapes.

Can you give a brief history of your music journey so far?

I started the Grey Frequency project in 2011, after playing around with an old shortwave radio and a reverb pedal. Tuning in and out of the stations while saturating them with effects created fantastic washes of other-worldly sound; haunting, atmospheric and totally captivating. As these explorations developed further I expanded my set-up with an of array old Walkmans; playing tape loops of found sounds and field recordings, together with sections of instrumentation.

After self-releasing a couple of albums and being featured on several compilations, I started playing live (my first performance was at The Church of Sound in Nottingham in 2015). Performing in front of an audience has helped me develop the Grey Frequency sound and also expand upon the visual side of the project. The creation and presentation of video pieces is very important to the live experience, acting as a complement to the music and helping to build a certain amount of mystique and mythology.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m preparing tape loops for some live events over the coming months, and working on material for a new album.
