hwyl nofio
‘a marriage of dilemmas being resolved in another space’ hwyl nofio is a group that defies simple classification. Variously described as experimental, avant-rock, ambient, contemporary classical, free improvisation, noise, the enigmatic collective specialises in music that blurs the boundaries that usually define genres. hwyl nofio (the name translates from welsh roughly as ‘emotional swimmers’) is an evolving ensemble based around its originator Steve Parry, who explores and exploits an ongoing collision between harmony and disharmony. Largely built around Parry’s abstract guitar patterns the music shifts between drone, embryonic melody and crackling elemental noise, re-placing rocks normal linear dynamic with a series of fractured dialogues in which disfigured musical elements collide and merge with abstract blocks of sound. HOUNDED BY FURY is the ensembles’ fourth album and includes material with contributions from Danish fractal guitarist Fredrik Soegaard and Hungarian guitarist Sandor Szabo. Broken Again features Gorwel Owen on imagined banjo.
