Ecclesiastical Scaffolding


Long-term dark ambient/experimental project based in Hobart, Tasmania. Originally released on Extreme Records while they were a cassette label in the late 80's, now released on own label (Mindless Eye Recordings) and on various other labels. My work has been favourably appraised by such luminaries as Steve Stapleton (Nurse With Wound), David Jackman (Organum) and Stefan Knappe (Maeror Tri/Troum). Last year saw the release of an Ecclesiastical Scaffolding work on the Sonic Arts Network "Otherness" compilation along with many well known and respected artists. http://www.mindlesseye.com/
