The Terrestrial Sea
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The Terrestrial Sea highlights the ever-changing environments of Cromarty Firth through music and film. In 2012 Mark Lyken was Artist in Residence at the Lighthouse Field Station, Cromarty, where he worked alongside the team of ecologists and recorded The Terrestrial Sea album. In this Cryptic commission for Sonica, presented in partnership with Filmhouse as part of Made in Scotland, Lyken has developed The Terrestrial Sea into an enthralling audio-visual performance with regular collaborator Emma Dove.
