... the CD POLMAN REISEN is the best you can listen to on the shortest day of the year: 'fernweh' (wanderlust?) kicks in for sure - the more so as you look at the photos of Mister Polman (the grandfather-in-law of kertal) on holiday in various destinations of the Southern hemisphere.

"ambient.space after kertal's time in-residence
you might have asked yourself, what's the mission of an ambientTV.NET artist-in-residence.
serving native ambients?
creating art on the assembly line ?
becoming famous later on so that ambient people can sell pictures of your residence time?
well, in kertal's case the job description was simple:
take some pictures, compose some music, do something.
ok, caaan do: some music, some pictures, something else"
