Under the Starry Stillness is a photographic diary of sorts: each post is relevant to the day it is posted.

I have a tumblr celebrating the atomic age, post-war architecture, and hauntology here: The Chemistry Set

I write quiet music and was part of the now defunct radical musical co-operative Make Mine Music

I was born during the winter of 1979 in the industrial landscapes of the West Midlands. I currently live in Sheffield and study biochemistry at the University of Huddersfield.

I'm a (disillusioned) socialist and a vegetarian.

I rather like: post-war architecture, modernism, hauntology, and electronic music.

I can also be found in the following places:

Yesterday I was preparing a few things ready for the start of term and I was amused by an entry in my journal which I can’t remember writing. I was suffering with a particularly bad cold and probably shouldn’t have gone into university that day.

It is Monday and I am ill—my chest hurts. It is Monday, I should like Mondays more. Everything feels strange, otherworldly, probably because I have a high temperature. I should like Mondays better. I don’t like this feeling. Chemistry should be better—everything feels wrong!’
