Dafydd Roberts has made music as Our Glassie Azoth since 1993. For this project, he invited various musicians from the emerging Welsh scene to a local studio, including composer Andrew Leslie Hooker and harpist Rhodri Davies, along with Japanese no-input mixing board specialist Toshimaru Nakamura, with the purpose of devising an object score based on Aberystwyth University’s Japanese ceramics collection. Their collaboration culminated in a sell-out concert in Aberystwyth, where Nakamura made his Welsh debut.
