The fourth release as Llyn Y Cwn, each track is based around a field recording and is supposed to represent the conditions at Llyn Y Cwn at that particular time, the roman numerals in the titles refer to the date the field recording was made, it is usually pretty wild and wet but sometimes peaceful and serine. One track holds particular relevance to me, XXVIII is based on a field recording I made in a natural shelter just underneath Llyn Y Cwn on my 40th birthday, a nasty sleet shower had just descended from the mountains, the photo used for the artwork was taken at the same time.
