I have been making my own homemade experimental music since 1981.
I was an active participant in the 1980s Cassette Culture scene, and I operated the Cause And Effect Cassette Distribution Service and label, and recorded solo as Dog As Master, and in a duo as Viscera.
From 1989 to 1991 I published six issues of the original Electronic Cottage print magazine.
In the last 36 years I have recorded, produced and released more than 300 solo audio works, collaborations and compilations. In the last two years I have revived my personal zine, HalZine. email website
