NTS radio's resident artist Christelle Oyiri aka Crystallmess shares with us, for the Lifetime project, a new unpublished sound piece in homage to the ancestors, in collaboration with Julien Creuzet for the voice and the texts.
Kiss & Tell uses field recordings and samples collected by the artist during her recent stay in Guadeloupe - her mother's native island to which she hadn't returned for 12 years. In Christelle Oyiri's words: "Kiss & Tell makes different temporalities and different spaces coexist. It is an ode to hauntology where the ancestor becomes a benevolent ghost who is invited to live in the house of the present. It is to reconcile oneself with the idea of being in the presence of a ghost, whether living or dead. »
