Inspired by a pair of field recordings captured during a trip to the shore, Lost At Sea… opens quietly, with softly billowing drones and wind-like currents moving through the mix. The piece gradually builds to a roaring crescendo before melting away to reveal a beautiful lattice of sparkling guitar loops and hauntingly delicate atmospherics. With Lost At Sea…, Ritger has managed to capture the illusion of being submerged beneath the sea: adrift, but at peace. basic_sounds is honoured to share this musical triumph.
