Format Info


Recorded in late 2021 and early 2022, Cryptic Lexis features two long-form pieces connected by field recordings made in The Shetland Islands in 2019.

The wind through a gate on a Bressay hillside is mixed with cascading guitars and minimal electronic percussion on “Confetti for the Flames” and recordings of Bains Beach form the backdrop of “Out on the Coast the Spirits Are”. Paris based artist Graziella Torrigiani contributes words and voice to the latter, her text a direct response to the instrumental track.
