Being no book, but telling a story Below Surface is the debut album of the same named German artist. Based in China for one year he found himself surrounded by fragments of ancient Asian cultures mixed with ultra modern societies. On expeditions throughout East Asia, Below Surface discovered ShanShui, a traditional Chinese style of painting which represents a steady and peaceful drawn image of landscape, often mountains that nonetheless provide an idea of immense restrained power. Eleven track album Below Surface is the massive outcome of elapsed time and applied potential, containing strong drums and basslines, partially paired with smoother sounds from synthesizers and field-recorders. Summed up: Unobtrusive but steady and powerful, like a mountain covered in fog.
