    Those already familiar with many works by Richard Skelton no doubt appreciate his pensive strings, solemn guitar, and somber field recordings, which create a landscape that’s entirely his own, unique as individual disquiet, desolation and in due time discrete grief. This past spring, Skelton began digitally releasing his previously unpublished recordings under the Archival Series volumes, which kicked off with a single twenty-minute piece, Riftmusic (Part Two). For the second installment, titled Ivystrung, Skelton collects three pieces that sonically meditate on Bark, Xylen, a limited edition pamphlet of “fourteen poems and fragments of the wood and field.” In addition to the same-titled track within the “woodland” theme, Skelton includes an unreleased piece, titled “Larch Light”, as well as a “revisited” version of “Noon Hill Wood” [a whopping 25-minute version] which previously appeared on his critically acclaimed album, Landings (Sustain-Release / Type, 2009). This digital compilation, as well as the previously mentioned printed literary material, are released by Corbel Stone Press, an independent publisher “specializing in handmade editions” with focus on “landscape, the poetics of place, ecology, folklore and animism”. The latter is run out of Cumbria, Northern England, by Skelton himself and his partner, Autumn Richardson.
