I just got Siberian Winter last week and it's quite brilliant, a bit more dynamic than North Passage. Also got Quiet Calling II a few weeks ago and it's already become one of my favorite ambient albums in recent years. I love cellos, and they're used to absolutely magical effect here.

I received Siberian Winter and I agree, brilliant disc.  Also about the fact it is more dynamic (not necessarily better, but style wise the first N.Depths was more subtle).  Highly recommended.  Nice job Thomas and Mathias!

Very nice and well-matched. I particularly liked your panning around 3:30-4:00.

Hey, thanks for the response and your nice words about it  :)

BTW: Just watching your "Soundscape for.." video. This is a great performance...what is that "Ping" sound ? It might sound funny but IMO it holds all together.

Cheers,
Tomas

Sorry Tomas - I missed your question earlier. The "Ping" sound is from a Korg Kaossilator set to a piano sound
which was then processed through a little distortion and phasing in an Alesis BitrMan and then a bit of reverb.
(You can see the Kaossilator later in the video when I've picked it up to play a few MiniMoogish lines.)
I was trying to evoke the feel of the "Ping" at the beginning of "Echoes" by Pink Floyd to tip my hat to Rick,
who had just passed away that week. Thanks for watching/listening and commenting.   :)

Hi Scott,

thanks for the info !

As i said i like this "sound" and the rare use of it very much - it evokes a great but subtle feel and itīs like an "omen".

Cheers,
Tomas
