Below expands on Zeus Faber's undersea sound, this time settling into a jazzy, atmospheric groove. Ocean sounds, synthesizers, piano, saxophone and guitar predominate, as on Scubason, but the group makes a few ripples in their sound by adding the Oberwil Choir and the string section of the Basel Sinfonetta. "Sunken Chamber" is an subterranean reworking of the Debussy piece, while "Moonwater's" gentle piano and strings reflect the varied talents of Faber. Below overflows with compelling, contemplative pieces for lovers of the sea and its secrets.
