Of the audio piece featured here, Craig says:

 

‘When lockdown began, I would leave my house in the morning and walk through the woods and up to the remnants of an iron age fort. This carried on for well over a month and it became something of a ritual for me, an attempt to make meaning in a context where I felt insulated from my own life. Two-Metre Island is an audio work about coming to terms with the world, and dreaming about it too, with the help of some guitar, banjo and bodhrán. It is recommended that you listen with headphones for the best experience. ‘
