We welcome the Sozu Project - new and exclusive to Vent is the first physical release of Terra Australis. 

 

With the help of penguins carrying sound devices, this album starts from Dominique Filippi's gorgeous recordings from the nautral environment; an imaginary journey to the most extreme place on earth. Hostile and beautiful at once, a place where humans have found pain and death, but also fame and glory. A place called the Antartic.
