about

The album is inspired by the underground Welsh art group 'Beca' who developed a vivid and politically charged visual language to challenge the nature of what Welsh art should & could be. For me the idea of confronting cultural injustice echoes many my own ideas regarding music & non - idiomatic guitar playing and has a direct connection to the Gwrth - gitâr movement that I am co-founder of.


Gwrth-gitâr (anti-guitar) is free playing in the sense that anything goes. It does not explicitly reject standard Western tuning, melody or harmony, but it does reject the need for such things. It seeks to explore new ways of using a traditional and universally familiar object to paint an alternative view of the world. It is improvised, unrehearsed, and leaves as much to chance as it does to the ability of the operator. It has no interest in being reproducible.


The 'Beca' album contains 5 improvisations for stringless guitar and preparations
