Victor Chorobik is a multi-instrumentalist who creates evocative electronic atmospheres combined with acoustic instruments. The synthesizers are mixed with flutes, duduk, saxophones, clarinet, violin, viola and vocals. Inspired by the film Bounless Light – The People of Tibet, Chorobik worked with lama Choying Rinpoche (vocals), Polish reed player Marius Kwiatkowski (saxophones and clarinet), and classically trained musicians Larisa Lebeda (violin, viola) and Victor lebeda (double bass).

Chorabik explains the recording process in the liner notes: “For months, we mixed narrative music, Tibetan chant, and elements of jazz and chamber music.”
