Exemption From Meaning

A five-way collaboration with Dafydd Roberts, Angharad Davies, Rhodri Davies and Andrew Leslie Hooker, Japanese artist Toshimaru Nakamura was recorded at the Listen to the Voice of Fire festival of experimental/improvised music in Wales. Exemption From Meaning is inspired by the University of Aberystwyth’s archive of Japanese objects. 

Rhodri Davies / David Sylvian / Mark Wastell
There Is No Love

Rhodri Davies and Mark Wastell performed this piece at Cafe Oto in 2016 playing along to a recording of Sylvian reading out the lyrics. The recorded version is just as disconnecting, with the latter's beautifully ageing voice combining with the former's harps and vibraphone and Wastell's...well...everything. 

Hen Ogledd

Hen Ogledd is, if you remember, the project started by folk maverick Richard Dawson alongside harpist Rhodri Davies. Here, they are joined by Sally Pilkington and Dawn Bothwell to make music which, if you believe the Guardian (and often it's a good idea not to) sounds more like electro-pop than the improvised folk you might expect.   

John Butcher & Rhodri Davies
Drunk on Dreams

Recording of a live collaborative improvisation by the saxophone's John Butcher and the harp's Rhodri Davies. Both musician's are known for pushing their instruments to their limits, playing fearlessly and ferociously. When they do this together, the world is at their feet. Drunk on Dreams took place on Radio France in 2015 and is now issued on Cejero.

Rhodri Davies & Louisa Hendrikien Martin

Hen Ogledd

Check this hot combo: experimental harp extraordinaire Rhodri Davies, the magical folk hero Richard Dawson and Dawn Bothwell aka Pentecostal Party. There is even a guest appearance from Laura Cannell hiding in the mix somewhere… Bronze is a highly expressive swarm of communal improvisation on varied instrumentation: remarkable sounds. 250 LP copies on alt.vinyl.

Laura Cannell & Rhodri Davies
Feathered Swing Of The Raven

Laura Cannell and Rhodri Davies both excel at taking bold approaches to traditional instruments. Two recorders are played simultaneously; a harp is bowed. The results of their collaboration, presented for the first time on Feathered Swing Of The Raven, feel ancient and strikingly new all at once. Released on the Brawl label.

Rhodri Davies
An Air Swept Clean Of All Distance

It's been a busy year for Welsh composer and avant garde harpist Rhodri Davies. His recordings provide a pretty exhaustive panorama of the vast expressive potential of the harp combined with his own rigorous sense of pushing the boubdaries of musical form in general. After a series of stunning albums that showcase the electric harp, for this album it's back to basics, with Rhodri playing only an unamplified harp with deliberately limited string configurations- linking the instrument's historical resonances with Rhodri's outre musical vision.
