Wetlands is a collection of Intelligent Ambient Music compositions inspired by places of greenery and water where life abounds in ponds, marshes and swamps. These tracks stem from what I think of as impressionist music. The selection and organization of sounds are meant to evoke a memory of a place or environment that is part documentary and part hallucination.

A wetland is a land area that is saturated with water, either permanently or seasonally, such that it takes on the characteristics of a distinct ecosystem. Primarily, the factor that distinguishes wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the characteristic vegetation that is adapted to its unique soil conditions: Wetlands consist primarily of hydric soil, which supports aquatic plants.
