Yn dy Lais - In Your Voice

Part of New Music Biennial

Welsh band 9Bach present an atmospheric, genre-defying piece sung in Welsh with an English spoken-word interpretation voiced by Maxine Peake.

Commissioned by the PRS Foundation for the New Music Biennial, the piece explores miscommunication and misinformation in a multi-lingual, multimedia age.

The band collaborates with drummer Andy Gangadeen (Massive Attack, Jeff Beck and others) who adds an electronic slant to its distinctive, evocative sound.

The composition is sung by Lisa Jên and accompanied by an English spoken-word piece that interprets and responds to the feel of the Welsh lyrics.
