Sunken got its inspiration from an old story. According to it during Greather Wrath church bells were sank to Ukkijärvi so that they were safe from robbers. An image of bells sinking down to depths fascinated me and I wanted to seek for sounds of bells in underwater world., its hollow timbre and the stagnation of deep waters. The search for these sounds allows many different interpretations.
