“This place and this story have captured the imagination of my wife and I, and over the last month I’ve been working on a 40-minute piece of music about Angelystor. To read more background on the piece, see my earlier post Composing with Yew Spectres.
How You Can Participate
I’d like to make a public call for participation in this project, open until January 20th, 2013.
While considering what the voice of Angelystor might sound like, I decided that it would be an aggregate of voices of all ages and sexes – the ancestral voices of the parish.
I would like people (globally) to contribute to the project by sending a recording of themselves saying a name. This could be either:
1. “Sion (pronounced ‘Shon’) ap Robert” – a man who, local legend tells, heard his own name spoken by Angelystor, or
2. the name of a friend, family member or hero you wish to memorialise.”
