Dimitriy Dzyuba The first ambient album I have purchased, this one has a very special place in my heart...

The absolute desolation invoked by these tracks makes for an excellent background to reading old science fiction novels or just contemplating the vastness of things.

A unique, haunting experience that set me out on the long, dark road of dark ambient... Favorite track: Arctic Hysteria.

Rotzettazz I'm impressed. The adding of real recordings of this man enduring an arctic hysteria crisis is just so intense...
I used this album as the soundtrack for the reading of a magnificent novel called "La panthère des neiges". Just perfect to create the illusion of being lost in the high mountains of Tibet, experimenting absolute loneliness and conviction of his insignificance, looking for the snow panther with deep faith, respectful patience and infinite admiration. Favorite track: Arctic Hysteria.

Ugasanie known for his freezing desolate soundscapes is back with a new album taking us even further north to explore the concept of the unusual and mysterious phenomenon known as arctic hysteria (also known as menerik and the call of the North Star). It manifests itself only in the polar night, and only when the northern lights shine. Man, as if under hypnosis journeys north. In this state of trance he is almost impossible to stop, he becomes aggressive, sings a song, mumbles, experience hallucinations and persistently continues towards the polar star. It is not uncommon that these people end up freezing or starving to death.

In track 5 the voice belongs to an old yakutish man. The recording was made during an attack of polar hysteria. This field recording was recorded in a Yakutia group of researchers led by Eduard Alekseev in the 60s.
