For the heart of the various musical projects of David Little, including smallhaus and Lines of Silence.

Latest release – Solstice 2 by Lines of Silence


Smallhaus and Lines of Silence are two musical projects by David Little to examine different approaches to making experimental psychedelic music.

Smallhaus started in 2015 after a number of years away from making music. Starting as a way to explore sound and music making outside of a traditional band format, initial experiments concentrated on manipulating found sounds and field recordings, alongside guitar and electronics. The sound developed to incorporate life-long influences from psychedelia, shoegaze and post-rock, along with electronica and ambient music. 

After the release of Nova in January 2021, smallhaus is on hiatus.

Lines of Silence was started as a side project in 2020 to explore more esoteric and conceptual recordings. The first Lines of Silence album, Terra / Aqua was released by TQN-aut in November 2020. The current Stations of the Sun project will release largely improvised pieces at the turning of the seasons.



I’m delighted to announce that I have two gigs upcoming – both at AMP Studios, Old Kent Road. 05/08/21 – Vanishing Point 05/09/21 – Tomorrow Calling Festival These will be the first live outings of Lines of Silence. As such expect largely improvised sets.
