remotely and with the additional help of field recordists and musicians around the world, Cerys, Joe Acheson (Hidden Orchestra) and assortment of uk poets created a sound journey themed on Genesis: Birth, heritage, a journey about to begin.

The album is composed by Cerys Matthews with Hidden Orchestra and features 10 UK poets: MA MOYO, Raymond Antrobus, Lemn Sissay, Liz Berry, Anthony Anaxagorou, Adam Horovitz, Cia Mangat, Imtiaz Dharker, Kim Moore and Kayo Chingonyi. “We are living in extraordinary times, I wanted to respond but had the urge to offer more than one voice, more than one perspective. Not an echo chamber” – Cerys Matthews. In February 2020 Abbey Road studios welcomed each of the 10 poets to record pieces from their collections. Fans of cinematic orchestra and portico quartet will love this!
