Ruffled by a distant paradise, Pyramid of Skulls is a one-off field recording experiment full of indigenous sounds.

Waters washed in melatonin can, in an instant, whip up unforgiving and violent tides, birthing nightmares from seemingly calm waves. The sea must be respected. Carelessness can be fatal. Seafaring drizzles its serene music over all four seasons and is itself deeply respectful
