"In "Resorts & Ruins", a set of three recent sound works, Kyriakides deals with several themes in both a physical and narrative sense. All the pieces use source material that highlight specific vocal traditions, namely Turkish pop music, Cypriot epic song, and Baroque opera, but they also all make extensive use of other forms of speech and vocal acts.

In "Varosha (Disco Debris)", a narrating voice is our tour-guide in the ruins of the Cypriot ghost town Varosha; the many fragments of voices, sung and spoken, were recorded by literally walking through them. Created for the exhibition "Suspended Spaces" for Maison de la Culture, Amiens.

"The 100 Words" is made up entirely of voices synthesized with electronic sounds. Commissioned and created at the GRM studios in Paris, and performed at the Presence Electronique festival in 2012.

"Covertures" consists of walls of sound made up from frozen moments from opera convoluted with the sounds and voices of crowds. The installation Covertures was created for the Dutch Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2011.

This CD comes with a postcard series created by Isabelle Vigier: "The Golden Seaside" based on images of Varosha, the resort of Famagusta."-unsounds
