2010 saw the release of field recordings 'fieldpiano' and 'mechanisme' on German labels. Both are now up
via dying for bad music pages.
2011 saw the release of 'Etudes' , Rex Harrison' and 'Bowie'. The latter a homage to the latter.
2012 saw the release of a compilaton called 'combine' and experiments with the chinese instrument
Guhzeng to celebrate the re-election of Obama - 'the beauty of repetition' and a series of experiments
on 'waferhome'. a track of which was put out on Gruenrekorder's summer compilation.

Most of the music is available at bandcamp

The latest release 'Pepin' needs some blurb and here is Portugeses film maker Hans Brittel

A journey through France last year harvested some ideas that are applied
to ‘Pepin’- Songs about shopping on ebay and making onion soup. Random and plundered jazz in the corridors of the Paris metro. The sound of French pop and the americanisation of language. Aural cheese perhaps.

Sure there are experiments – revisiting the door that Jeff built – before and after WD-40 was applied. ‘A study in milk’ was commissioned for a compilation in January 2013 celebrating musique concrete. Nigel - sunslide’s love of wine is celebrated with an 80s style ‘alone on the dance floor’ song that George Michael would be proud of..

There’s a cinematic quality to some of the music –‘sauce vert’, ‘par 2’ and ‘flight home’ with a sense of space.
The cover of Sharon Van Etten’s ‘Kevin’s’ is a simple piano and voice affair and lovely for it. In all ‘Pepin’ is Fresh and familiar, Close and warm but not humid or moldy. In a world made redundant by horse meat, war and de-forestation
don’t we all deserve a little pep. 'pepin it is.'
