I did a gig at STFU Konstanz in Germany. Was a great weekend, was cool to hang with the usual crew and some great new faces.
My set was the last one on Saturday and I tried to get the place moving. I’m using some new synths in this one and I am pretty pleased with how it went down.
Some gigs for your diaries:

Doing a few gigs as Ben Eyes. Its my name used for more electro-acoustic music. Here is an excerpt from a recent gig at Hogwash, an experimental music night in Leeds:
New Audio Visual Set for 2013 – – – Live from the Rymer, York 2013.
Ben Eyes – Live @ Supernatant in the Rymer from beneyes on Vimeo.
Playing with Ed-DMX, Ceephax and a host of Centrifuge peeps aboard a gigantic East German cruiser. BALTIC!
Have a track on the Centrifuges most excellent compilation “Moments Of Inertia”:
My track is called “Random Player” featuring some wonderful cello playing thanks to Chris Mullender.
Lots of things in the pipe line and some half baked hair brained schemes.
Two new live sets performed at Dresden STFU over Summer:
The first being a more traditional Electro / Acid affair, the second performed in a lovely outdoor courtyard with thunder and rain. Was a very cool gig and thanks to all the lovely people who were organising and dancing. All the acts I saw were brilliant and it reminded me of why I love the STFU festivals and why I do what I do. Life affirming stuff really.
Some video :
Started a series of experiments with convolution.
Dashing through the snow by quip
Starting on writing a whole bunch of new music. Some of it electro / techno some more experimental and with lots of real instruments I haven’t used before.
