Over the last 2 years i have made regular field recordings in Coedmor, a place i pass through on my walk, or cycle to my studio in Llangoedmor, in the lower Teifi valley. As part of his commission for Studies for Maynard my collaborator and Melbourne- based sound artist Barnaby Oliver has laid down some of these original field recordings in a timeline. In 3 live studio sessions in May he added accompaniment with piano, violin, harmonica and banjo.
‘Some of these places I might know, some I don’t. In my studio halfway around the world I listen, and imagine I can play my way into these places. When I’m there, I don’t do much, just look, listen and be part of things.’
