A quick question on Cornish

I know a lot of people in this community are into minority languages and such requests seem to get results pretty quickly, so I have a quick question about the Aphex Twin song Jynweythek Ylow. Wikipedia tells me this is Cornish (Richard James himself coming from Cornwall) and translates as "(electronic) machine music", but further Googling hasn't yielded subsequent information or verification.

Is that an accurate translation? And further, how would it (approximately) be pronounced? (IPA is fine.) I have always been a fan of the song & the album it's from and am curious.

Thanks in advance!
