about

Twll Du ('Black Hole') is an ominous dark ambient journey through vast atmospheric landscapes. Each beautifully crafted opus is based on a bespoke field recording and is named after an area of Cwm Idwal, home of the Twll Du. Swelling, monolithic drones reveal the majestic power of the mountains. The music conveys an immersive atmosphere and is intended to be played as the listener falls into a deep sleep.

Llyn Y Cwn ('Lake Of The Dogs') is a small lake at 715m in the Glyder mountain range of Snowdonia, North Wales. The Devil's Kitchen is the name given to the dark, black crack which splits the rock of Clogwyn y Geifr ('Cliff Of The Goat') between Y Garn and Glyder Fawr. The Welsh name for Devil's Kitchen is Twll Du, meaning 'black hole', because of the plume of steam that is often seen rising from the crack resembling a chimney. It's said when steam can be seen rising from the chimney, the Devil is cooking.

File next to fellow Welshman Lustmord.

"I am an electronics technician for the School of Ocean Sciences at
Bangor University, I spend a lot of time of time at sea on scientific
research cruises which is where most of my music is written using a
laptop and headphones. I have been on research trips to the arctic
several times on Russian, British and Canadian icebreakers, an
experience that has been a large inspiration to my music. I have
lived in North Wales all my life and spend as much time as I can in my
camper van in the mountains." (Benjamin Ian Powell)
