Synopsis

Amazing video by the Schmidt Ocean Institute where they showed deep ocean images captured by SuBastian, their own ROV, launched from their research vessel Falkor, during a 34-day expedition off the remote Phoenix Island, an archipelago located more than 3,200 miles (5,100 km) northeast of Sydney, Australia.

Among other amazing creatures shown was a very elusive "glass Octopus"(Vitreledonella richardi), a completely transparent octopus floating in an ethereal fashion, that was the inspiration for the beautiful electronic soundtrack by Tatiana A. Gordeeva.
