From a new generation of eager and explorative experimental Welsh musicians (perhaps best represented by Cooke's "Dukes of Scuba" zine) comes "Gwrth-gitâr", a set of improvised guitar duos.
"Gwrth-gitâr is free playing in the sense that anything goes. It does not explicitly reject standard Western tuning, melody or harmony, but it does reject the need for such things. It seeks to explore new ways of using a traditional and universally familiar object to paint an alternative view of the world. It is improvised, unrehearsed, and leaves as much to chance as it does to the ability of the operator. It has no interest in being reproducible"
