Very pleased to share this beautiful composition of Owain Park, performed by his ensemble, the Gesualdo Six, in a new video made by Owain. This piece originally featured in the 2016 musical sequence on In Parenthesis (DAVID JONES: July 1916, The Battle of Mametz Wood from In Parenthesis) performed on several occasions in 2015 and 2016, including at the "David Jones: Dialogues with the Past" conference from July, 2016 (www.davidjonesdialogues.com/events.html).
It makes many of the musical allusions of the work come alive, while also being deeply sensitive to the musicality of Jones' own language. It is a testament to how much Jones' work provides inspiration for other artists (of many media), which is one of the most important dimensions of his work.
