Immerse yourself in four sensory sound worlds, with Gwilym Morus-Baird’s 4 Tales to Save the World: a Sound World Experience.
In response to the current crisis, original plans for a live tour have been transformed into something personal, immersive and really rather special!
4 Tales to Save the World is a brand new storytelling sound world experience which has been made into a special limited edition Box Set created and recorded by Welsh singer-songwriter and storyteller, Gwilym Morus-Baird and directed by Bethan Dear.
This original work draws on specially commissioned tales, written and performed in English, from four of Wales’ leading short story writers – Kate Hamer (shortlisted for The Costa First Novel Prize for The Girl in the Red Coat), Joao Morais (described as “a great slice of comic Cardiff urban realism written by a Welsh Irvine Welsh’ – Independent on Sunday), Mary-Ann Constantine (whose piece is recorded partly in Welsh) and Bethan Dear – with original music, creating four distinctive worlds, imagining a future Wales following climate crisis.

Once downloaded these recordings are yours to keep. You’ll also receive an invitation to a live online Q&A event hosted by Gwilym with the four short story writers on Sat 13 March at 8pm, featuring live music and your chance to hear more from the artists and ask your own questions.
