Subterrestrial - "Lake Tahoe" digital album

Formed some 2 million years ago by glacial action, Lake Tahoe is one of the world's deepest and largest alpine lakes. It is an area of unprecedented natural beauty and is something of a muse to Subterrestrial.

The album of the same name was composed and performed using acoustic (albeit sampler based) instruments and sounds exclusively. Drawing influence from dark ambient, darkwave, ethereal and world music, "Lake Tahoe"conveys the profound, divine natural beauty of the region that inspired it. This 14-track digital album can be previewed online now for free and the full download can be purchased in high quality MP3, FLAC and many other formats of your choosing. Over one hour of music for €8 EUR.

The gallery is open 12 – 5 weekdays, 11 – 4 weekends, closed Mondays. They will be exhibiting, amongst other things Subterrestrial's "Map of the Interior World" floppy disc EP, which was released last summer by Diskette Etikette Rekords. They should also have a few copies on hand for purchase.
