Lexical Variation presents a deep sonic flow through punctuated soundscapes, molten drones, and hovering chunks of industrial ambience. Constantly shifting sound structures evoke an evolving narrative and surreal rhythmic lyricism that coheres the nature of the piece across its full program of just over a hundred minutes. Lexical Variation follows Into the Clicks, Ryan’s first long form experimental ambient release on Somewherecold Records in spring of 2021.
