A Guidonian Hand gathers ten interlinked sinistral recordings made by Richard Skelton across 2020/21. After the distorted sine and square waves of last year’s These Charms May Be Sung Over A Wound, this new album broadens the focus to embrace cello, woodwinds, bowed cymbal and piano. The result is a darkly thrilling drift through acoustic and electronic domains.

‘hills, valleys, ridges, rocks – these things never age, and neither does the music.’
(Fluid Radio)

‘one can’t help but wonder if the 21st century polymath has extended his own hand to history.’ 
(A Closer Listen)
