Cloudscape: Aqua Vitae, Aqua Mortis (Decadans vs. Evening of Light)

aquavitae_aquamortisThis cloudscape was put together as a back-and-forth collaboration by Decadans and Evening of Light. Our concept was to put together something that leans quite heavily on depth and water, something that channels the magical and emotional forces of water. A lot of magic and ritual elements, sometimes ethereal, sometimes deep, sometimes a touch of fire.

Many thanks to Roamin for hosting our cloudscape, and to The Posse for fostering Mixcloud collaborations.
