about

Released on St. David's day 2010, Awen (a Welsh word for "poetic inspiration") sees Ben Powell return to his roots for the 10th release under the Mank moniker. The album is inspired by characters from the Mabinogion, a collection of Welsh folk tales recording memories of ancient Celtic mythology. Recorded on a laptop the tracks combine field recordings with virtual and real instruments whilst demonstrating Ben's inventive composition style (for example, "Blodeuwedd" was composed using tidal current data from the Menai Straits, "Cyhreath" contains a field recording of an ice breaker crashing through ice at the north pole).
