In a Word is the collaboration between postminimalist composer Daniel Lentz and vocalist and sound artist Ian William Craig. It is the sixteenth installment of the intergenerational collaboration series FRKWYS. It will be out digitally on November 20th, and physically on January 29th, 2021.
According to the press release, it is an album that embraces erosion and the fertility of the loam left behind. A document of shared transformation, Lentz’s elegant piano figures and Craig’s trembling tenor are wilted, warbled, and looped through manipulated tape machines in a real time composition that evokes a strange warmth and layered beauty.
