Krisopolis An enchanting & atmospheric album, which I have found has a calming quality to it that is almost hypnotic. A pleasant combination of sounds from nature, an altogether warm quality to the production, & gentle spoken word sections which emulate the cosy feeling of listening to a bedtime story. I have found myself listening to this many times since I discovered it, & it always brings me considerable comfort. Really wonderful. Favorite track: Early Morning.

Notes from Driftwood 1988
 
"Some strange and bad things happened in our neighbourhood that summer. The algae had a poisonous blooming, which did effect the fish and seals along our coast. On walks by the sea you could find dead fish. Alarming! The newspapers were full of articles and the public awareness of pollution was intensified. This was the time for ecology and awareness of natures balance. It came natural to work with this theme as the next project; Driftwood.
 
As inspiration, besides long walks by the seashore, one persons work was essential, Richard Longs. A line of stones in the Himalaya, a wordpiece about placing objects at the edge of the Pacific, a circle of driftwood on the Alaskian shore, a walk through snow, wind and sunlight in Lappland, a mudcicle on a gallerywall. These are examples of works by Richard Long. His effort to reach a profound knowledge of nature, through sensibility and humility, was an encouragement for the work composing Driftwood.
 
Our work with Driftwood was in a sense a way back into childhood, when a stone could be important, when the sound of water filled ones head, when "simple" things were marvels. We opened, once again, the "Doors of Perception". Entered an altered state, where time flowed slowly. We recorded and collected sounds and pictures during our walks. Birds, wind, the sound of different waters. A lapwing on eggs, dead fishes by the seashore."
