Contemporary influences such as Boards of Canada, AIR, and FSOL also began shaping his music and the first ambient soundscape demos emerged and circulated among his fellow EM peers. With the encouragement of those around him, Michael began to look for an internet outlet for his music and the concept of Bouvetøya was conceived. The name is from the Norwegian spelling of Bouvet Island in the South Atlantic, the most isolated island on the planet. This is a reference to the Bob Moog quote that "electronic music is played by musicians who work alone and listened to by people who listen alone."
