A loner escapes the noise of city life to record ambient music utilising sounds of the wilderness. The discovery of an old abandoned floatation tank and experimenting with psilocybin mushrooms evokes a strange alchemy of deep-rooted memories, taking him on a disorientating voyage deep into the heart of nature and ultimately; deeper into himself.

The film features an original score from LA-based Evan Caminiti, also part of renowned doom duo ’Barn Owl’ who has conjured a soundtrack of guitar drone mixed with analog synths, both intriguing and quietly terrifying. It was shot in anamorphic in a remote forest location of Värmland, Sweden 2019 by Swedish cinematographer Max Larsson.
