WaterToday is on the lookout for original water music. After asking around on reddit we came across Peter Sigaev who lives and studies music in Moscow. Peter agreed to compose a 10-minute soundtrack for WaterToday. We gave him creative control over the project but insisted that marine sounds and original instruments be part of the score. After much to and fro, we acquired to rights to his 'Water Hopefulness'.
