"Now here on BBC Radio Wales for the next hour we move to a brand new mix from Antonymes AKA Ian M Hazeldine from Hawarden in North Wales. Gladstone country. Ian's music defies any easy categorisation. It's experimental, but accessible, contemporary classical without being opaque pretentious and minimal without being whispy and insubstantial.
