Aquatic Therapist and Craniosacral Therapist
Stef's background is in Emergency Nursing, where she worked as a Nurse Practitioner. She learnt there about managing every kind of stress, trauma, illness, and every type of response to these situations. Stef trained in Craniosacral Therapy after experiencing the work while looking after a friend with cancer, and observing the profound effect it had on the whole family. Cranial work taught her about the impact that our experiences have on us throughout our lives, and in particular about how we hold these in our bodies.
We supply a large playlist of original music selected and composed specifically for underwater listening.
Gwen is an experimental composer and multidisciplinary artist working with sound, sculpture, moving image and installation. She is interested in the relationship between sound and environment; her practice is underpinned by landscape, mythology, ritual and synaesthetic crossover, particularly the dynamic between colour and musical notation.
She uses field recordings as material and physical fragments of the landscape to create hand-built instruments and sculptural sound devices. Engaging in acts of translation and transformation, she interprets landscape in musical terms, exploring how musical composition can be used as a means of mapping space and the cultural, ecological and socio-political significance of space.
Gwen was commissioned by Liquid Vibrations as an associate disabled musician. She composed Dyfroedd Pell as part of our Arts Council project Liquid Listening, which took place from May-September 2022.
