sample the album:
"The title 'over shadows' comes from Redell Olsen's book, secure portable space. Rhodri Davies is a significant figure in European experimental and improvised music; extending his harp under a battery of techniques - burning, scraping, EBowing, fixing speakers in the soundboard of his harp or via other particularly inventive tactics. Working with the foremost artists in the field such as Otomo Yoshihide, John Zorn, Sachiko M, Luc Ferrari, Mieko Shiomi, Jim O'Rourke and Christian Marclay."-Confront
