A concept album about Smoke ("Kapnos" in Greek), as the third chapter of the Between the Elements quadrilogy, born from an idea of MB/Maurizio Bianchi (who provides notes on the CD cover), Matteo Uggeri and Spyros Abatielos.

The Meerkat ensemble is formed by a small group of Italian musicians working on the field of experimental music, drones, microsounds and field recordings. As Frans de Waard (Vital Weekly) stated, "If you have been paying attention in the last few years, you may recognize these names as Italy's finest in the fields of ambient, electronics, microsound, post guitar."

The tracks of Kapnos present a surprising homogeneity in spite of the different attitudes of the artists, which mixed their experiences in each track, creating new unforeseen connections, working in pairs or in threesome per each track.
