Brilliant write up forecasting our Tregaron festival! Weekend tickets are selling fast-time to snap them up….towards the end of the month there will be limited day tickets too
Arbenning/Arbrofol-Visionary and ancient folk tradition in the heart of mid Wales. Your Anglo-Welsh antiquaries present to you the first in a series of live space collaborations with/at Oriel Rhiannon. Kindly supported by Ty Cerdd.Rain slashes down on Tregaron, there is a deal of darkness brooding o’er the territory. It’s not quite an Ysbrydnos, not quite Halloween and the promise of informal whiskey tasting may well warm us later, but come for the strange charm of Welsh flute folk and improvised modular synthesis, I think this will be a very special evening for the music curious…..see you later!Hwyl am y troDafyddhttps://www.eventbrite.com/e/music-for-modular-synthesizer-and-flute-with-ffrwd-and-ceri-rhys-matthews-tickets-175364559117

I found this photo-hundreds of 7″s on the floor, paint daubed, you can listen to our (abortive) contribution to Norbert Schilling’s massive Conrad Schnitzler re-mix CD—-it was snuck away on the flip of a pastoral whim (The Magpie’s Advice):

I was shocked to hear that Rowan had died. I didn’t know her directly. Like many others I was drawn to her magical music. So we opened up a conversation and pre-Covid she was to play at The Shining Pyramid-now that would have been something. So, recently, learning she’d relocated to Cornwall and not far from where my sister lives, we chatted on Fb about the possibility of coming down there to do something or that she may ‘return’ to Wales at some point for a Pyramid follow up. We were lucky enough to have received her track ‘Annwn’ for The Surface of Past Time, this is-unsurprisingly-the most played track via Bandcamp on that collection. We were very happy that as The Shining Pyramid was cannibalised into that release and Ysbrydnos that she contributed here too. So no LVOF live performance, no meet up in ‘real’ life but a connection was made. She created a deep score for itdreamedtome and this is testament I think to her subtle musical work. My sad condolences go to any who knew her well and all her family and loved ones.
A couple of re-issues to melt your brain, and/or cool your worries by harsh ambience, scree flute haze, and primitive gliss guitar dronery from Ciliau Aeron, West Wales -one of these is 27 years old!According to Forced Exposure-way back:“Excellent debut album by two mysterious musicians from Wales/UK. Their music sounds like they have adapted parts of ‘Sternklang’ by Karlheinz Stockhausen for ten distorted guitars. Their focus is upon pure noise with an intent to locate, draw out and revel in it’s hitherto hidden harmonies. Using the rough sound of variegated tape-manipulations with some acoustic instruments such as flutes and woodblocks they enjoy to produce feedback drenched drone chaos that flutters and filters into a transmutary experience. Entirely conceived in an isolated part of Wales, their environment is both actually and musically expansive and/or desolate at turns characterized by the cyclical coloration of Nature.”& Ed Pinsent of The Sound Projector in 1998 wrote:“Further minimalist excursions into terror and strangeness, this one (originally) released by Tony Dale in Victoria; four long abstract tracks, including Gammae from their first single. The longest and best is the 20 minute ‘Insist upon the Way’, an astonishing meditation of noise that indeed suggests Dr John Dee at work in his reverbatory, amazed and terrified by the unstoppable power he has unleashed. A beautiful package, all sleeve components printed on textured cream art paper decorated with mad alchemical images and a lengthy quote from Eugenius Philalethes’s Lumen de Lumine, an impenetrable 17th century text.”Both available now!

Great show by Gayle Brogan. I loved to hear Gayle talk Natural History. There were several new music leads for me to chase. A welcome dip into The Surface of Past Time and the excellent Old Million Eye too. I await next month eagerly.
