The techniques and practices involved in both the recording and in the composition of the recorded material relate to a long-standing themes for the researcher. These themes include an exploration of the relationship between landscape and soundscape, the extent to which our sense of place is affected by sound, and the issue of whether the creative practice of sound may provide an innovative perspective on our environment. Lake Baikal, in Siberia, is a unique place that has been designated a UN World Heritage site.Further infomation on Baikal Ice
