Angharad Van Rijswijk is a fluent welsh speaker, ex-Trwbador member and all around art enthusiast. Moving to Wales from the Netherlands, the half Welsh, half Dutch musician creates dreamy Bjork-like sounds with surreal visuals that cross the line between mundane reality and imaginative euphoria. Collaborating with the likes of comedian Stewart Lee, supporting Meilyr Jones and earning a slot in this year’s Swn festival, her open nature for working with anyone (or anything) in relation to her field is downright impressive to say the least.
R.Seiliog is alias to Robin Edwards, a musician/producer operating from Cardiff, Wales. He was born in the basement of a watchmakers shop in Peniel, North Wales in 1985. This early exposure to the syncopated rhythms of countless different timepieces was to have a lasting effect on the way he hears the world and indeed, composes. His music has the repetitive, hypnotic, and melodic qualities of his kosmiche forefathers Klaus Schulzes, Cluster, and Harmonia, but is rhythmically more akin to minimalist composers like La Monte Young and Terry Riley. Put simply his music is drones and loops elevated with cheeky little melodic jaunts and pops. R.Seiliog's debut EP Shuffles saw him prepare the world for his interwoven frayed, melodic threads of krautrock, psych and experimental electronics. This was followed by his first release for Turnstile, 2013’s mini –album ‘Doppler’, a record that hurtles through saturated krautrock and modulating drones via spectral flecks of psych-noise.
