The Past Remembers the Future
A new release (2020) 
This started out as an ambient reworking of "Time" hence the 
cover image. It quickly developed a life of its own.

Journey into Oblivion
A new release (2020) 
Getting a bit dark and lost in time, it's a journey over the edge

and atmospheres in here. Of course.

4m33s Extended Live at Awakenings 2005
This is the live set from Awakenings on 10th June 2005 when John joined
up with HyperEx Machina to play a double length set, due to another artist
pulling out. HyperEx played mainly guitar throughout the set, and his 
contribution completely changed the outcome, very much for the better.

When one of the bands for Awakenings pulled out with no time
left, the JS set had to become double length, to prevent a
'hole' in the running order. So that the audience would not be 
totally bored with this, he asked HyperEx Machina to add his 
guitar parts to the tracks. Although he only almost no time 
to practice, his playing fits in really well, and takes the 
JS sound into another dimension.

 

The Piece With No Name
This was recorded in a single day, all tracks are first take,
except for the Single Edit, which as you'd expect by the name, 
was put together from parts of the other tracks.
Inspired by a Harrison Birtwhistle piece seen on the Proms,
the entire album was done on just one voice of one synth,
withe the left hand doing the drum parts, and the right hand
doing the lead parts.
