...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!
