Stone. Sinks silently until it hits the ground. Various sentiments and moments captured in sound. Idyll, shortage of breath, dungeon, phantasm, flotsam, ruin, longing for death, shore.

Eight mostly dark and mysterious tracks involving a lot of piano, sinister soundscapes and occasional rhythmic parts. In addition to the piano, synthesizers, voice, recorded noises and guitar were also used.

The artwork is based on a photo taken in Slovenia.
