    Henry Kaiser, legendary guitarist who has played on over 250 albums,
    and a scientific diver with the US ANTARCTIC PROGRAM, marked his tenth
    deployment beneath the twenty foot thick ice of the Ross Sea in 2012.
    Mr. Kaiser has more Antarctic under-the-ice footage in films and TV
    shows than any other underwater cameraman, and probably more dives
    under fast ice than any other professional videographer. He was worked
    on 4 different feature films with Werner Herzog, including
    ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD (the new soundtrack CD will be
    available at the concerts) and GRIZZLY MAN.
    Henry Kaiser and Damon Smith (Houston) have collaborated for two
    decades resulting in over ten albums and two Werner Herzog soundtracks.
