New Release: The Eight-Thousanders

The Eight-Thousanders is the collective term for mountains that are 8000 metres and above. They are the worlds highest mountains.
For this extraordinary collaboration, newcomer "The Great Schizm" came up with the idea that we all picked from a selection and work on a track designed with that mountain in mind. 
The outcome is staggering.
Spanning over 2 discs, each at 45 minutes long, the tracks give the listener a unique insight into the artists interpretation of their chosen Eight-Thousander.
Disc 1 contains 7 stunning ambient tracks from The Great Schizm (K2, Nanga Parbat), usr/sbin (Cho Oyu, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri), eigensphere (Hidden Peak aka Gasherbrum I) and Pete Farn (Broad Peak).

Disc 2 takes you to the next level. A more adventurous aural expedition!
Featuring tracks from Bluejooz (Everest and Malaku), eigensphere (Gasherbrum II), Transmission 71 (Lhotse), Schlaflabor (Xixabangma), Pete Farn (Manaslu) and Somnarium (Kangchenjunga)

Both releases are free to download and to stream and are released under the Creative Commons License. (3.0)
