An Air Swept Clean of All Distance, originally released as a limited edition LP in 2014, is a solo album by experimental harpist and prolific improviser Rhodri Davies. Each piece on the album explores, through absorbing repetitive patterns, the tradition and the many underexplored possibilities of the lap harp. 

‘The engrossing music on An Air Swept Clean Of All Distance matches the lucidity of that title while appearing to connect at a still deeper level with various African traditions of playing the harp. Davies settles obsessively on tumbling phrases, arpeggios and articulate rhythms, turning them over and over, letting them develop only within strict limits, as though this fine prolific and adventurous musician is freshly discovering a harp that has been there all along’ - Julian Cowley, The Wire
