"water, water everywhere.
nor any drop to drink."

in the more than 220 years since those words were first penned by the english poet samuel taylor coleridge, his tale of a forlorn mariner has become mandatory reading in schools around the world due to its continued relevance in a world struggling to retain its admiration and respect for nature and the beautiful creatures that are born to it.

this aural telling of the rime of the ancient mariner by the canadian artist scott fox who is well-known as a member of the tribal industrial project ivardensphere embraces the poem's darkest tones of forsaken solitude through ambience, haunting rhythms, musicianship and masterful narration. join us on a sublime journey to that place where god does not look and no matter how much you may wish to die, death watches from afar.

the text of the poem in all 7 parts is included in the digital booklet of this release and can also be found here:
