Solo work of free-improvisation/immediate-composition on acoustic lapsteel, banjo, mandoline, acoustic guitar, 12 and 6 strings electric guitar. As David Keenan puts it "There is something of the late John Fahey's electrical guitar conceptions in the movement of Lacroux's playing, particularly his last recordings, where John Fahey's umbilical to country blues extended far enough to make of it a future wraith, the ghost of it's origin come back as a distant dream. (...) Guilhem Lacroux works single solitary notes into soft sighing shapes. His playing is taut and loose, sounding tactile, percussive note clusters, sliding between lunar notes. Lacroux works in signs and patterns, translates them into figures suspended in air, into simple repeating notes."
