With this album GALACTIC UNDERGROUND presents the listener new and unheard sounds and shapes new worlds. It is not just space music, although the name may give you that impression. It is also ambient. Atmospheric and, yes, sometimes deep or light-weighted and minimal. Sounds may be raw. Fragile. Thin. Cold. Harsh. Mellow. Distorted. Unpleasant. Angelic or Deep. Furthermore with GALACTIC UNDERGROUND great musicians from around the globe are invited to participate.
For this album guest musicians are Roksana Vikaluk, Erik Wøllo and Robert Rich.
