Album Remarks & Appraisals:
In this new release, the Flat Earth Society, a speaker and a soprano sing the fate of an iceberg in 1912. From her spectacular birth in Jakobshavn to her unmarked disappearance in the North Atlantic ocean, and in between some incident with a luxurious ocean liner, this music tells the tale of a boat sunk, an iceberg melted, and the universe continuing on. No-nonsense artist, former architect, clarinetist, saxophonist, keyboard player, composer and producer Peter Vermeersch, wanted to explore new horizons after having convinced music lovers all over the world with his previous projects. This group consists of 15 musicians, occasionally rounded out by guest singers.
