I remember being quite buzzed about the news of a collaboration with you, John Foxx and Steve D’Agostino. I find the finished product to be supremely useful to dream to. Might there be more suchlike in future and is there anything you might share with us about the process of making ‘A Secret Life’?

The concept came from the live performance with Harold Budd in Brighton (don’t remember the year exactly … early 2000′s) at which John Foxx also sang. Harold asked me to perform a 20 minute solo gong piece (very easy to insert comedic illusions of oiled, naked flesh here, but let’s resist) similar to something that was featured on an album of his some years previous. After the event, John asked me to record similar gong pieces for an album, this is what became utilised on ‘A Secret Life’.
