Matthew Shaw: using acoustic bowed and plucked guitar, vocals, moog
prodigy and korg kaossilator, Gorsedd spans two heady visionings of area

The winter Solstice is neither represented musically or pictorially but
respected as a time of inward thought and contemplation, the opportunity
to reflect and release and let go into no thing.
Composed, performed and sculpted by Matthew Shaw using acoustic,
bowed & plucked guitar, voice, Moog Prodigy & Korg Kaossilator.
Recorded in Christchurch, Dorset in 2014.
