The space between the cuts takes on its own significance; it's like staring at a sheet of white paper until you see your soul. The electronic winds of time howl through this collaboration. It's ambiance that surrounds you. well... like ambiance.    INK 19

Beyond this flood a frozen continent
Lies dark and wilde, beat with perpetual storms
Of whirlwind and dire hail, which on firm land
Thaws not, but gathers heap, and ruin seems
Of ancient pile; all else deep snow and ice....
- Milton, Paradise Lost, II.

From Chaos came forth Erebus and black Night; but of Night were born Aether and Day, whom she conceived and bore from union in love with Erebus.
- Hesiod, Theogony (120–125)

Frozen Thoughts "Calm Before the Storm"

...this is music that hews closely to the Brian Eno School of rhythm-free, melody-free ambient environmental audio experiences.    INK19
Biosphere’s "Substrata" comes to mind, as Frozen Thought’s chill-out music also incorporates delicate environmental sounds of snow, fire, ice and wind.    SONIC IMMERSION

Glacial Movements is pleased to promote the new ambient album by Petar Sakic (Frozen Thoughts, Phobos). He started producing music in 1999, heavily influenced by hardcore/gabba and industrial sounds. His first release under the name Phobos came was out in 2004 on a very popular Dutch label called DNA tracks. After several years of producing and releasing hardcore music for a couple of Dutch labels, Petar wanted to move in a different direction and expand his productions skills on new genres of electronic music. When he heard Substrata by Biosphere in 2005 he instantly fell in love with that style of ambient music. Petar than started to dig deeply into ambient releases and became heavily influenced by the already mentioned Biosphere but also some dark ambient producers such as Lustmord, Ah Cama Sotz, Atrium Carceri and Kammarheit. He started to produce his own ambient and dark ambient tracks, which led to first two releases in the ambient genre on Dark Ambient Radio CD compilations Vol.1 and Vol.2 from Germany. After those releases, Petar wanted to produce his first solo ambient album, influenced by the beautiful Glacial Movements releases. He started to record various snow, ice and wind sounds and glue them with big and lush synth sounds, which finally led to his first fully completed album called " Calm Before The Storm ". The first track of the album is dedicated to Reflections Of Dead Maidens, an old Viking expression for Aurora Borealis. Second track, Eternity Without Time, is dedicated to eternal ice and vast white vistas of our poles. And so on and on – that's Petar's vision of this album but feel free to have your own vision, close your eyes and enjoy it!
