Although I’ve been to Snowdonia many times before, I have never visited landscape around Blaenau Ffestiniog. The main goal of the trip was walking around Stwlan Dam and disused slate mines. This part of Wales is known worldwide for the slate and disused mines are pretty much everywhere.
Wales, Snowdonia November 2017, 7:30am-ish. Chris has just parked the car and I’m putting my walking boots on. Rain is gentle and it looks like it’s not going to stop soon. Great. Where is the 80% chance for a cloud-free summit which was promised by the weatherman?
Soundlands is offering an opportunity for sound artists to create a new sound artwork as part of the Bangor Sound City project. Two successful artists will be selected to create an installation or performance for the city of Bangor, North Wales, and Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia. The works may be original or re-worked for the new context but must not have been previously shown in Wales in any form. They will be shown between June and July 2015.
