Ursus Maritimus

Glacial Movements
The title of this track by Rome-based artist Alessandro Tedeschi (aka Netherworld), comes from the Latin name for polar bear. Created entirely on a Roland VP-9000 connected to a multi-effect rack, and while cradling his baby daughter, this majestic excursion into arctic ambience lives up to its title. Icy cold soundscapes hover in stasis, while bass rumbles and a clustered rhythmic sample stumble on like a gentle giant trudging through deep snow.
