For the first full-length concert of SP!TSBERGEN, George De Decker was inspired by the unfinished novel, “Le Mont Analogue”, by French author René Daumal (1908-1944).
Daumal wrote extensively about alpinism: "The ascent of the summit serves only one purpose: the adventure of the unknown."
In George De Decker’s work, the imaginary journey is a recurring theme.
In 2013, he composed i.a: the soundtrack for the multimedia project “Ørnen 1897”, which was written as a paean to the first aeronauts who flew over the North Pole.
Even those who never have seen the Arctic Ocean, has in mind the romantic views of lonely landscapes, glaciers, fjords and especially the eternal ice.
