¥ 1,001
  • Availability:

A limited edition of 100 pieces released by Walesian acoustic artist LLYN Y CWN, which has been released on cold spring in the past, from the cassette label Muzan Editions in Nara.Includes 60 minutes of a harsh cold geological drone based on a damp winter field recording recorded in the hills of North Wales. This book is recommended for those who like Thomas Köner. DL code included.

On this and his other releases, Llyn Y Cwn's primary inspiration is the land. It has a distinct sense of presence --powerful, ancient; eternal even. Similar in tone to Thomas Köner, a base coat of wet and wintry field recordings made in the hills of North Wales are paired with deep drones and washes of snowy synth pads built up to evoke the intimidating scale and harsh cold of Snowdonia in its grayer months.

The folklore behind the mountain ranges that are the tracks' namesakes anchor the works firmly in place. Per the artist: "The two tracks are named after mountain peaks in the Llugwy area of ​​Snowdonia --Pen Llithrig y Wrach (Slippery Hill of the Witch) and Pen yr Helgi Du (Hill of the Black Hunting Hound), according to Welsh folklore a pure black hunting dog (Helgi Du) is the only thing that can kill a witch that has transformed herself into a hare.
