Axxent Opaque performed at Lockdown Livestreamers

Our synth band performed an hour long set, between 11pm-12am, that was broadcast live on YouTube, being the last of four acts performing that night. This was the result of a few days of rehearsing, or rather creating new material to perform, partially structured and partially improvised. The video and audio quality for the viewers was great and we performed the entire set better than we had done all weekend.

Axxent Opaque were guests on Radio Show

Tonight we were honoured to be guests on the Future Sound Of Exeter radio show, hosted by Paul Giblin , and broadcast on Phonic FM . The two hour show passed very quickly as Paul played our entire album From The Dark Dimension interspersed with other electronic music. It was great being able to talk about each track in turn and generally describe the creative process that went into producing the album. It was a lot of fun to do and Paul was a great host. We laughed a lot! The show can be heard on Mixcloud

Away in A Manger released on Bandcamp

This synth version of Away in a Manger is now available to download from Bandcamp . It was originally made to be a backing track to accompany children singing in a church carol service in 2007-8 and was later released as part of a charity- Christmas EP in December 2010 under my own name. Even though it was made before I started recording as CosmoMoose , I re-released it under that name because its synth tone is in keeping with the 'CosmoMoose sound'.

My last day in full-time employment

After balancing my music with a non-creative full-time job for over 20+ years, I finally left full-time employment on Thursday, 26th May to pursue music full-time. This is considered a brave move by many but what I really feel called to do. So, now the adventure begins (after a little rest) into different avenues of music which I'll be sure to post about.

New venture - new video

This is a first day of me being a full-time / freelance composer/musician, after 20+ years of balancing that with a full-time job. So last night's task was to redo my study/studio after bringing back my keyboards from last weekend's Axxent Opaque gig. I did a ‘quick’ video of me reconstructing my studio which can be viewed on YouTube (and is on the Home Page of this site). The music used is CosmoMoose " Dead Exit Main Theme " - a future release!
