Description

On this self-titled album Hywel Davies, a composer, sonic artist and installation artist, reveals his most significant recent preoccupations as a composer - exploring the possibilities of 'white-note' music and music with controlled elements of chance.

A parallel creative life as a sonic installation artist and a concert music composer has resulted in captivatingly diverse works, presented gracefully in this release. Combining elegant string and piano writing with striking abstract themes, the album drifts from the softest of melancholia to rich and intense vibrancy. Such transitions are delicately effortless and slow, with thought and determination behind every note.

"Nothing in the classical canon quite prepares you for Hywel Davies." - The Wire
