Welcome

John Montgomery's web site. John Montogmery is semi-retired, working as a waiter, and attending to his creative pursuits during the frequent zero-hours. Plenty of time to pursue painting and sonic art.

I graduated from Gray's School of Art in 1974. Coming soon! I am in the process of arranging a pop-up gallery to show my paintings, and invite some Sonic Arts students to perform in the space for some added interest.
I graduated in 2016 with distinction. These are some of the work pieces I did
My final performance piece incorporating
drone pedal software I wrote.
Animated Graphical Analysis I did of
Adrian Moore's Inspirational Study in Ink
For many years I took part friends in weekly
worship music vigils in my church and in King's College Chapel,
jamming on songs I wrote.
We decided to take our vigils on tour around several
churches in the area. This was the scgedule.

Why "The Vigils"?
Originally, this site housed recordings made at Thursday and Friday Vigils from 2004 - 2015, Held in King's College Chapel, and my mither kirk.. The Vigils were "waiting before God" in music. Because it was published, to avoid copyright issues, I wrote the worship songs, and we basically improvised around those. There are hours of them stored on this site.
