It was the third day of the annual Riga festival for adventurous music — Skaņu mežs (Sound Forest) presenting all sorts of experimental modern music performances.

After an unfortunate search for the Big Wheel in Meža Park — another childhood memory in Riga — we headed for the Latvian Railway History Museum, where the concert took place that day.

We were particularly interested in Lustmord, which is well know as the founder of Dark Ambient musical genre.
