Oceans between Sound is a major work by the Ethernet Orchestra that covers a 5 year period of the ensemble’s performances with a running time of 180 minutes. These freely improvised pieces are inspired by the ebb and flow of network data, as a metaphor for the world’s oceans separating the members of the ensemble, and their geographically displaced lives.

The album includes performances by internationally acclaimed improvisers including; guitarist Chris Vine, best known for his work with Elliott Sharp, Bobby Previte, and Bob Boilen in the downtown music scenes of New York and Washington D.C.  Trumpeter Roger Mills who came to prominence during the 1990s with his work with the Bristol-based free jazz ensemble SpaceWays and trip-hop collective Statik Sound System (Cup of Tea Records) as well as Grantby (MoWax). World renown Moorin Khuur player and throat singer Bukhchuluun Ganburged, and the late Richard Lainhart who worked and performed with John Cage, David Tudor, Steve Reich, Phill Niblock, David Berhman, and Rhys Chatham.
