He has also recorded ten albums with Bruce Russell under the name A Handful of Dust.

In 1999 he began a collaboration with Matt De Gennaro, where the two toured New Zealand Public Art Galleries converting them into giant soundboxes by stroking tensioned wires fixed to the buildings' structural supports. In 2002 he designed and built a glass-tube fire organ, during an arts residency in Wanganui. In 2006, he released "Waves and Particles" a collaboration with his partner Maxine Funke (The Snares) and Mike Dooley (The Enemy, Toy Love) as The Hundred Dollar Band. There was also the release of Volume 2 of "Long Wires In Dark Museums", and the reissue of his early albums "Morse/Gaudylight" and "Talisman" by U.S. label Table of The Elements. Later that year he was awarded an Arts Foundation of New Zealand Laureate Award and released "Belsayer Time" a collaboration with Richard Youngs and Alex Neilson. In 2007 Galbraith built a treadle-powered glass harmonium and released "orb" a solo album on his own Nextbestway label. Read more on Last.fm.
