The material is derived from 4 different Welsh folksongs discovered whilst I was researching in Swansea Library in the summer of 2014, surprisingly on a couple of rather wet days. There is an imaginary narrative at work; it is not a coincidence that the centenary of World War I played upon my mind. As such each song becomes more brutalised in its treatment whilst the final song is fragmented until little or no trace remains.
