Arctic ambience, melting with imagination, leads the listener to the frozen tundra at the top of the world. This rarely explored land, resonant with a shimmering radiance that is bleak, barren and mysterious, is distinguished by slivers of fantastical nuances that twinkle like crystals under the midnight sun.

The original CD of ’Drifting in Motion’ was released 2000 on Crowd Control Activities. This is an enhanced re-release for even more refined sound and experience of ’Drifting in Motion’. The entire album has been carefully restored, re-recorded and mixed in 2007 and has been spiced with 3 more nuances.
