Cynefin - a unique Welsh word meaning ‘habitat’, and so much more

Tŷ Cerdd’s arts & health initiative CoDi Grange, is a project whereby, music and sound installations were made for Aneurin Bevan University Health Board's new Grange University Hospital in Llanfrechfa, part of an extensive arts programme, supported by the Welsh Government and curated and commissioned by Studio Response. 

Tŷ Cerdd in collaboration with Studio Response and health board staff commissioned artists from a range of genres to create the music and sound installations especially for the multi-faith chapel space in the hospital. The six works were designed to improve the well-being and experience of hospital patients and visitors as well as the NHS staff that work there each day. The response from people who have listened to the compositions at the critical care hospital has been extremely positive.

Now the works are being given wider release on a new album, Cynefin (a unique Welsh word meaning ‘habitat’, and so much more), which Tŷ Cerdd is issuing this month.

The lead music artist was award-winning electronic composer Jo Thomas, who, together with the Tŷ Cerdd team mentored the other participating music-creators through the unique creation process. The six resulting works are:

Cynefin is available to pre-order now and will be available to purchase on the
Tŷ Cerdd website and be available to stream from 5 November. Further details about the CoDi Grange project from the Tŷ Cerdd website,
