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.

Saint Etienne and Paul Kelly’s How We Used to Live
I saw this at the Crucible last night with the score performed live by Saint Etienne. It was something of a double treat for me being a big fan of both Saint Etienne and post-war architecture, which the film is chocked with. The film is atmospheric, evocative and flows delightfully, and I must add the choice of Ian McShane as narrator was inspired!
The film is currently touring, the dates are here: Heavenly Films; it is well worth seeing on a big screen.The trailer is here: How We Used to Live
