Here is a message posted by Peter Benisch regarding a pending reissue of this album.

Dear reader. I'm really sad to write this. A while back I got an offer from Mr Downey at Psychonavigation Records to re-release an old record I did, Waiting for Snow, originally released on FAX. Since I know a lot of people like it, and that it’s hard to get hold of, I thought it was a great idea.

Also the original label owner, Peter Kuhlmann aka Pete Namlook, died much to young only a few years ago, and I felt it would be a way to honor him and his work aswell through this. So I signed the contract…
However, the preview and design of the material didn’t feel right, so I told Mr Downey I don’t want to pursue this and asked him to cancel the release.

Chockingly, he said he will release it anyway without my further input. I have not sent him any of the orignal audio masters so I cannot wouch for the quality of such a release, even less figure out how it can actually be done.

But should this take place, this is devastating since this is one of my personal favourite albums, originally released by a label that does not exist anymore, and the label manager, a true friend, Is dead.

Just want you to know, that if you should see this release coming in the future - It is against my will, and I have nothing to do with it. I have not delivered any original audio material or had any part of the design.

I just made a mistake of signing a contract of something I thought would benefit everyone, and pay tribute to an old friend.

Thank you for reading. Please share this post.

"Waiting for Snow" had been long an intrigue until it was finally re-released on Ambient World, which is not the common case for PS releases. So what do we have here? Beautiful frozen-like textured drones, lonesome melodies, thoroughly constructed rhythms and some light sound effects. No doubt, Mr. Benisch is a talented and skilful sound-producer, but the album came out looped and static. Of course, this may be the part of a "snowy" concept, but I personally prefer creativity and dynamics in music. Nevertheless, the album has a pleasantly melancholic mood and would fit well for playing on late autumn or winter days.
