Reflections from Shpongleland is a Super Deluxe hard backed 20-page full-color pull-out postcard book featuring the futuristic hi-tech digital artwork from Shpongle’s Simon Posford.
Created during the final stages of production of Shpongle’s recently released magnum opus, Codex VI, these artworks display the same dexterity of tone, texture, and form as the incredible music itself. Shimmering, psychedelic geometries effervesce on the page in mandalic form as they open portals to the immortal and allow the viewer to become enveloped in the original visions of Simon Posford’s unique artistic creativity.
The much loved Shpongle mask becomes the subject of manifold kaleidoscopic coloring and psychedelic symmetry, recontextualizing the forms all Shpongle fans know and love so well and playfully exploring alternate dimensions of pictorial presentation. Beautifully bound in hardback cover, this cosmic collection of pull-out postcards is a must have for all Shpongle fans. Each Art Card is a perfect present when posted to Friends, family, Alien Entities or glistening Machine Elves!

About The Album
Thriving for balance, Costa paints Zoungla using ethnic sounds of the past with futuristic electronic tones, extremes from silly to sad, dark to bright, calm to intense and serious to fun.
Uninspired by the corruption and hatred in the world, Captain Landsick grew weary of the land around him and sets course to explore new realities and fulfill his dreams. In the midst of his journey he finds himself mirroring that exact image he despised and became just as greedy as the atrocious world he once looked down upon. Mother Nature, taking matters into her own hands, condemned Captain Landsick to a lifetime of being a prisoner of the sea.
As time passes Captain Landsick becomes interconnected with his crew mates and takes the time he’s been burdened with to reflect on the purpose of life. After being humbled by Mother Nature’s grand design, his journey to conquer land had turned into a lesson of becoming one with the universe and he finally finds solace in Our Land.
Experience the instrumental musical that takes you on a journey through the storms of the sea to discover the arbitrary walls we build and the lines that we draw!

As early as Costa Damoulianos began to learn the letters of the alphabet he was learning the notes of the piano. At the age of twelve, he strived for a broader awareness of music and turned to the bass guitar and drums which eventually led to the discovery of his talent for playing guitar and singing. When Costa turned 17 he began his professional music career and attended Vanier Music School to learn jazz guitar.
However, the most crucial moment of his early adolescence was the day that his father introduced him to a tape mixer, this was the day when Costa first found his love for mixing and producing music. Multi instrumental curiosity led him to technologically advance in what he believes to be one of today’s most interesting musical techniques; electronic composition.
Costa takes influence from various styles of music such as Pink Floyd, Ott, Shpongle, Jeff Martin, Dream Theater, Argaman, Rush, Hans Zimmer, Pain of Salvation, Yanni, Devin Townsend and Koji Kondo. His love for music continued to expand and develop and he increasingly devoted his time towards a progressive direction, introducing Zoungla.
