Tweoxneam CD coming soon

Tweoxneam from Matthew Shaw on Vimeo.

Tweoxneam is a long form sound poem based on the palimpsests and toponymies of Matthew Shaw's hometown Christchurch. The mysteries of its apocryphal and actual history are soundtracked with a carefully unfolding procession of organic music and birdsong.

Twoexneam is presented with a visual and textual guide taking in the Dorset world of Gerald Gardner, the appearance of Christ-like carpenters, and the still sounding tocsins of neolithic power centres.
