about

Élan O'Neal is a self-titled project from the artist behind the nature-influenced folk ambient project, Old Forgotten Lands.

"Subterranean Cartography" was created almost immediately upon an
instant whim of inspiration, drawn from complementary forces of
oceanic research and fascination. Add this to the fact that I went out
and bought a new synthesizer, and the rest is history.

Thoroughly recorded through sleepless nights all within one week, this album ended up being one of the most personal and ambitious projects I have yet to embark on, as the culmination of my fascination married well into my will to try out new textures and elements I had yet to embed into my music.

Conceptually, I was amazed by my experiences in my research and wished to create a soundtrack for the vivid pictures which now struck my psyche: miniscule ocean life following seasonal, almost telepathic
electromagnetic paths mapped out by forces which extend to the stars. From the deeps to the skies, our universe is intricately connected, and its mysteries are many... much of which lies in the underwater crevices of our own earth. our surrounding seas.
