Dotflac Yair Elazar Glotman uses here abrasive textures derivated from field recordings and add them to electroacoustic elements dear to him.

Reminding crystalline drops of water falling in endless horizons of cold seas and the scratch of the wind on our skin, our cruise in the northern regions turns a bit supernatural with the ethereal sound processing applied to Northern Gulfs.

What may sound rough first tends to transform into a calm lone journey on flat and foggy seas.

Oneiric. Favorite track: Sunken Anchor.

Places that man has forgotten...icy landscapes...fields of flowers covered eternally with ice... Icebergs colliding amongst themselves.
