Shaped by echoes of glacial caves and the perspective of the ice, this sister record to the original album offers a captivating and meditative journey through the natural world.

Cooper mixed the accompanying piano album using the echo captured in the glacial caves of Norway. Scientists working on applied acoustics provided him with impulse responses, allowing him to apply the unique reverb of the caves to the piano recordings in his studio.
