Evolution of Beauty

Evolution Of Beauty is the relatively new project from west Wales based composer, musician and sound artist Richard James (Gorky’s Zygotic Mwnci), releasing an EP ‘Light:Dark Travel Fields’ in 2021, and an album ‘Mosaic’ in 2023. He is currently working on new music and sound projects and a new album.

Richard will produce a series of immersive 5.1 surround sound and music pieces to complement Tony Kitchell’s artwork ‘Modrwy Diemwnt’ within their shared and collaborative overarching themes of nature, environment and climate, at the Capel Seion chapel in St Davids. Richard will draw upon the music associated with devotional ritual in relation to ancient pagan relationships to nature in order to highlight the need for a reawakening and new appreciation of a symbiotic relationship with the natural world. A stereo mix of the music produced for the surround sound installation will be available to download via scanning a QR code at the Capel Seion chapel venue during the weekend of the Boia Festival October 25th-27th, and thereafter for a further seven days of the installation being in situ at the chapel, after which the work will be available on Richard’s bandcamp page to download with a suggested donation to a climate charity or organisation of your choice; be it local, national or international.
