I love underwater themes in general. I'm surprised there aren't more aquatic-themed ambient albums.
I hope you enjoy it!

I can understand bringing back the vinyl record format, simply because so many people claim that vinyl has a fuller sound, with higher frequencies and lower lows. I'd love to hear feedback from forum members here who hold that view. But what I don't understand is... WHY DID THEY RESURRECT THE CASSETTE TAPE? In my opinion, it's a very flawed format that I was glad to see dead and buried. Does anyone else remember painstakingly rewinding, by hand, the cassette tapes that had been "eaten" by your cassette player? You seemingly had miles of tape to wind back in without tangling it up. Sometimes you were successful, but the tape never sounded quite the same because of the wrinkles that occurred during the rewinding. Grrrr... and back then I was a real stoner, and rewinding the tape was a real buzz-kill.
What's next? Re-introducing the 8-track tape?
Thanks for these kind words!
Very glad you like the image, it's even better when you'll see it full size (the other half is on the back cover),
anyway - like Mike already kindly mentioned I do photography but wish I had taken this myself, I did not have the opportunity to visit antarctica and do any ice diving yet...
When I was recording this album I did some research about ice diving and discovered some wonderful
imagery that turned out to be framegrabs from movies taken during ice diving expeditions in antarctica taken by a member of the expedition group. He asked me to remain uncredited and I respect that, it was a great gesture from these people allowing me to use this and 2 other images in the inside of the cover artwork.
When I first saw this image I knew it's the cover for my album, it was just perfect and sort of guided me through the rest of recording of the album,
I hope the music will also be a good reason to buy the CD! :-)
