One long piece inspired by a small snow covered and inhospitable piece of rock on the fringes of the Antarctic, its eternal claim to fame being having served as the temporary home to a group of marooned crew members of the vessel Endurance, an explorer under the command by Ernest Shackleton lost in the Weddell Sea in 1916. Here though, ignoring the hardships of survival, the island is painted in blissful colours. You can almost see the sunlight glistening in the icicles as they melt in the midday sunshine. In Schabtach's world, Elephant Island is a serene and peaceful place. There isn't a whole lot going on during the hour it takes for the track to reach its conclusion, the same patterns and sounds are used throughout, but on the other hand it never dips into boring territory either. It is a nice and mellow piece perfect as a winter backdrop and ought to be appreciated by most ambient enthusiasts.
