Hen Ogledd

Hen Ogledd (no relation to the great Anglo-Cymbric band of the same name!) is the Cymraeg term for the 'old North' - the Romano-British Cumbric speaking nations that encompassed much of what is now Northern England and Southern Scotland between the 5th and 7th centuries CE.

Originally released on the limited edition Cdr, Open Provocation, to support Kathleen MacDowell and Robert Curgenvens' festival of the same name in Polruan, Cornwall, April 2013.

Archival recordings of various heating systems, effervescence in wine glasses, igniting matches and frozen lakes were drawn upon in composing this piece for heat, fire, ice and chemical reaction.

Mastered by Robert Curgenven.
