The Manafonistas, and what the word means to David Sylvian

von: Manafonistas Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off

What significance does the word Manafon have?

I came across the word in relation to the life and work of R. S. Thomas. It was the location of his first parish (a small village in Wales) and the place where he wrote his first three volumes of poetry. Over time the word became for me a metaphor for the poetic imagination, the creative mind or wellspring, hence the cover art of the cd ‘Manafon’ which depicts an implausible idyll if you will. A place where the intuitive mind taps into the stream of the unconscious.
