Clang Sayne are an experimental folk quartet (4 voices,guitar,bass clarinet,cello, drums) directed by Laura Hyland, and they explore the boundary between song and sound improvisation.

They released their 2nd album, 'The Round Soul of the World' in Spring 2017, a track from which appeared on the April 2017 edition of the Wire's Tapper cd series. You can hear the album in full here.
Currently based in Ireland, the group features Laura Hyland on voice and guitar, Judith Ring on voice and cello, Matthew Jacobson on drums and voice, and Carolyn Goodwin on bass clarinet and voice.
