       Historical Notes

Peter and HåkanIn early spring 1997, Håkan Almkvist, who Peter Lindahl had started to connect with through his dealings with the record label APM, got himself lost in the labyrinth too. From there on they had a bit of a partnership going between them.  The next ITL album was released in 1999 by Håkan’s newly started company TAP (Tone art production) and was distributed internationally by Record Heaven. It was titled Walking on Clouds.  Because of the involvement of Håkan (who is known to have great experience of India) and as a result of an extensive journey which Peter and his wife made to the subcontinent in late 1997, Walking on Clouds may reflect some of the various atmospheres that belong to that part of the world. Peter wrote lyrics about, among other items, the hindu godesses Kali and Durga, about the Himalayas and the notorious yeti. They used quite a lot of sound effects on the album, most of them originating from Nepal and northern India though some came from elsewhere. 

For the most, Håkan and Peter were focused on the Hindu element and generally on upbeat material. They allowed for an increase of vocals and tried to get in as many supplementary musicians as possible, as long as it enhanced the sound and the over-all feeling.
