playing in a vast, dark, underwater field.

After an exhaustive research of underwater recordings, a selection of sea-animals, manly-made sounds, and meteorological factors served as an inspiration to find new instrumental possibilities. Nevertheless, these new instrumental elements continue their development in a pure musical way, transforming themselves from pure nature-imitation to autonomous musical material. The final result is a pure musical piece, with an underwater-atmosphere reminiscence. All instruments are amplified (there are no electronics), in order to expand their sound density and create a condensed soundscape.
