Cosmic

Intergalactic Assassin/Interplanetary Bandit... he has a few names


The first 'Cosmic' photoshoot. I am looking plainly into a camera with a slight head tilt. I am wearing the first 
                            run of Satori Records merchandise; a plain black t shirt with a kanji symbol for Enlightenment on the front. The background is a vibrant 
                            graffitied wall in Stokes Croft, Bristol, UK.

Cosmic begain in a second year Electroacoustic Assignment for Composition and Performance at university. I had a big love of generative audio and destructive/off-piste mix techniques and thought hey, wouldn't that make for a corker of a song? One set of lyrics about two of my friends in a forbidden relationship, a series of pseudo-random chord changes, severe pitch correction and glitched text-to-speech of a Romeo and Juliet quote later... Gravitate, the first Cosmic track was born, snowballing into an three-track EP of the same name...

                            The words 'cosmic' and 'gravitate' are in the lower right corner in a rounded typeface.

Riding the wave that oscillated outword from the *ahem* moderate success of Gravitate, Cosmic embarked on his first full length EP. Sitting on a beat-melody combo from four years prior, the track Touchdown was born, paving the way for astronomical trip-hop bops to come into fruition.

The front cover for the first Cosmic LP titled Touchdown.
                            The photograph is of me wearing a tie-dyed long sleeve t-shirt, with my eyes closed and generally with a dreamy expression. 
                            Behind me is a large scuplture at the Eden Project, showcasing orbits around an Earth model. The background is lush green 
                            jungle forestry.

Touchdown came with a few singles/videos on it's debut via Satori Records...

Scrub

Did you hear the one about the two academics who walked into a bar?


Scrub. Starting off as a four-piece university assignment band called 'Scrub Lords' and recording covers from TLC and Stevie Wonder (see the Luke Child section below) Scrub went from four to two, and became the punk outlet for myself and fellow academic in HCI Corey Ford Jamming together throughout second year uni, Corey asked Luke to guest star vocals on his own music, the 'Corey and Friends EP'.
Scrub then wrote five original songs with a total length of under ten mins, recorded them all in the summer of 2021, dropped a song, failed to mix them, and is still waiting to release their first EP. Watch this space.

                            perched on a sofa. Corey is dressed in all black and is tuning/noodling on his guitar, and I'm sat staring at him. There are guitars and
                            acoustic treatment on the walls behind us.

Luke Child

A section for "here are all the random additional projects where I'm just little old me making some noise"


I've gotten involved with various musical projects throughout my time on this planet.

The album cover for Flu and Me - A Compilation of Isolation Vibrations. The art is of a Godzilla-like creature chasing
                                        six humans down a road while shooting lasers at them from it's eyes. The humans represent the seven collaborators on the album, all with shocked expressions as
                                        they run away. The art style is that of MS Paint, and features the title as text toward the middle left.
