    Hi James,

    As it’s along similar lines I thought you might be interested in a film I made a few years ago, I limited myself to using a flatbed scanner to produce all of the images, and asked my good friend Dogtanion ( to only use sounds in the soundtrack that he could capture and manipulate from the very same scanner.

    Should you be interested, you can see it here:

    Also, while I get the chance, I just wanted to say that your set at Green Man was the highlight of the weekend for both myself and my partner Laura. Good work!

    Superb!!! Love it! I was just about to send in a sample from my Ukulele, might do for part two! Any chance you got the tabs for “This Sweet Love”? A cheeky ask i know!! Superb though, love Part 1

    Hi James !
    First : really good song ! As usual !

    And…(i don’t find a subject about pukkelpop on your blog…)
    I was just in front of you during your concert at Pukkelpop ! It was really frustrating ! And all because of your mac ! I saw on your twitter you think it is because of the heat… On my opinion, the heat can slow your computer but can not malfunctioning your USB/midi configurations.

    I have a friend who has the same problem as you. Depending on the room where he is, the pc runs more or less, and especially the USB port does not work. We think this comes from the electricity on which the computer is connected. The USB ports are really sensitive to electricity.

    Maybe that is the problem….maybe not :s !

    In any case your acoustic concert was really excellent! You have a really nice voice!

    I started out in music (electronic of course) and I’m also using live. We could talk (twitter or whatelse) if you want and share some tips.

    I hope to see you in concert again!

    PS : excuse my english, i’m french 🙂

    Fantastic piece of music James!! I’m amazed at just how fast you put this song together, its really very impressive. Some great samples used there and of course I’m chuffed to bits you choose to use mine… thankyou!

    By the way, is one of the samples a Champagne cork popping off? (at about 2.10?).

    Hope you had fun doing this project, just as much as I had recording myself tearing up post-it notes? haha!

    All the best and keep up the great work,
