This week NAWR welcomed Angharad Davies, Lee Patterson, Susan Matthews and Ian Holloway to the BBC Hall for our second concert with The Swansea International Festival. Both duos treated us to amazing performances, including our first controlled fire at NAWR! Check out the photos from the concert here.
This week The Swansea Laptop Orchestra held their first workshop wth the selected composers for the Tŷ Cerdd CoDI electronic pathway project, and I was on hand to take some photos of all the lovely people. Check out the photos of the fun day we had here.
Hen Ogledd, a new supergroup formed by Dawn Bothwell, Rhodri Davies, Richard Dawson and Sally Pilkington have released their debut single Problem Child along with this amazing video. My words won't do the video justice, I suggest you watch it instead! :-)
Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have discovered the chemical detection abilities of an African musical instrument called a mbira. The instrument uses metal times connected to a wooden sounding board which produce a musical tone when plucked. The research has discovered that using a hallow U-shaped tine filled with different liquids produce notes of different frequencies. These differences can be used to detect different liquid samples such as sodium chloride or non-toxic glycerol.
