Album Notes
This is my first solo project as "Ocean Camp", composed in the course of 2012 while researching modular synthesis and performative compositional techniques. The idea was to build musical soundscapes without limiting myself to addressing a specific electronic music genre, but restricting to analog and acoustic instruments the means with which to explore my musical ideas.

Getting more and more into it I realized I was being deeply influenced by an interest in early Antarctic exploration, the conquest of the South Pole, etc, and the classic reads that came with it (Shackleton's diary, Lansing's reconstruction, Hurley's pictures...). That said this Album is more about rediscovering these great themes (of ultimate discovery, uttermost loneliness, great heroics, etc), in the soundscapes I was creating, than about trying to fit the music to some pre-defined decision of making an "Antarctic Soundtrack". 
Each piece started as a sonic performance which sometimes ringed true with what in my mind could have been a good musical representation of how I pictured a particular event or emotional landscape. For instance "Water where She Stood" was inspired by the sinking of the Endurance ship. "Dawn Patrol" recalls the freezing, silent hour, just before the sun comes up, of a man on patrol-duty on the ice. 
In any case I tried to keep any reference to a specific Antarctic event somewhat hidden, only sometimes hinting at it in the chosen titles, so that the musical work could be enjoyed independently.
