It is great to have Angharad Davies at Counterflows 2015, especially doing her own music. I have known Angharad’s work for some time now. She is one of the great collaborators. But for Counterflows we have commissioned her to create a new piece of solo music. With the release last year of the beautiful Six Studies Angharad is now grappling with her own vision for violin. Her work with Cranc is some of my favourite music that she has recorded but it is in the live situation that her complex work on violin really is most powerful. Last year I was lucky to catch her solo set before Kim DooSoo at café Oto and it was utterly beautiful.
