The Terrestrial Sea
The Terrestrial Sea highlights the diverse and ever-changing environments of the Cromarty Firth through music and film. In 2012 Mark Lyken was Artist in Residence at The Lighthouse Field Station in Cromarty, where he worked alongside the Field Station’s team of ecologists, IOTA and the University of Aberdeen to record The Terrestrial Sea album.
With visuals commissioned by Cryptic for Sonica, Lyken has developed The Terrestrial Sea into a captivating cinematic performance with regular collaborator and filmmaker, Emma Dove.
“Mark Lyken transcends this revolving door of a reality by giving us so much to be thankful for. A stellar, touching release. Welcome to the terrestrial sea…” Fluid Radio
