The release of Water Above' is the latest movement in Oliveros' six-decade-long career, which began at the San Francisco Tape Music Center in the '60s and was distinguished with the William Schuman Award for lifetime achievement in 2009.

The album was produced by Rabih Beaini and designed by Tankboys, with original cover art by Nathalie du Pasquier....
