 BE THE FIRST! 

(ltd. ed.  750) Wurm is the name of the world's most recent glaciation which ended around 10000 years ago and have occurred in the Pleistocene epoch. The term WÜrm comes from a river in the Alps where the glaciation was first identified. During the height of glaciation, most of Europe and Eurasia was open steppe-tundra, while the Alps presented solid ice fields and montane glaciers. Scandinavia and much of Britain were under ice.
Immense white expanses...infinite silences...sunrays reflected by eternal icefields...every release of this new series will be a circular, slowly-unfolding and ethereal long-form musical piece, in which the artist will describe this endless Ice Age, its eternal ice, the blinding white light, the abyssal silence. Music will transport the listener to peaceful and unexplored lands.
'When I've been asked to describe the Ice Age with an uninterrupted drone, I knew I wanted to avoid the cliches of the genre: dark rumblings, massive low frequencies, cold atmospheres. I had to describe with sounds the white landscape, the blinding light reflected by the frozen oceans, the abyssal silence.I have imagined myself in flight over this Sleeping Earth, a solitary winged-being surrounded by winds, air, water and ice. This led me to compose an airy drone with minimal variations and delicate tones, an hommage to a pure, incontaminated and remote land.' Oophoi, January 2008.
