Eithriedig rhag Ystyr : Exemption from Meaning: Toshimaru Nakamura and Rhodri Davies

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


A collage documentary response to Japanese ceramics (5 mins 12 secs).

This experimental documentary film work resulted from the author’s inclusion within a wider creative research project, funded by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, which assembled a group of international experimental musicians to create an object-oriented score in response to Japanese works within the Aberystwyth University Ceramic Archive. The resulting film responds to a physical encounter with Yashuo Hayashi’s untitled ‘black sculptural form’ (Catalogue Number: c1320); and documents an improvised musical collaboration between pioneering musicians Toshimaru Nakamura and Rhodri Davies. The film was premiered within the BAFTA Cinema programme of the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Llanrwst in 2019, and subsequently selected for inclusion within a special Japanese program to be presented at the Aberystwyth International Ceramics Festival in July 2021.
