Crossing and blurring musical boundaries is an art form for Piers Faccini. Treading the frontiers which delineate one country from another, he finds inspiration in the cultural ambiguity of borderlands. With this new album, we find him navigating contours of a different kind.
In "Between Dogs and Wolves" he roams the hidden geography of the heart. In French, there is an expression to describe the mythical moment when at dusk, light begins to fade and night slowly seeps in. It is called ‘entre chien et loup’, between dog and wolf. The term has specific scientific definitions, relating to the time at which the sun lies somewhere between six and eighteen degrees below the horizon, dusk though is a time for lovers and poetry. It is a time between dogs and wolves.
