Moving from human utterance to a dystopian
wild landscape, natural sounds are interspersed with a range of sorrowful
sonorities, eking out and building on the misery of the soundscape. Brief
gestural sections punctuate the evolutions, allowing the composition to move
into different textural realms. Material recording at Lake Vyrnwy and in North Wales.
