Pacific Codex is the name of the seventh studio album released by British musician, songwriter and producer Steven Wilson under the pseudonym Bass Communion.
The album consists of two discs containing the title track mixed in Stereo in a CD and the 5.1 Surround Sound mix in a DVD-A. The song can be split in two sections as displayed in the cover of the Equation Records edition. All sounds were generated from recordings of Steve Hubback's metal sculptures, played by Steven Wilson and Theo Travis. The record is packaged in a card gatefold-style jacket in a slipcase, along with a book containing images of the sea by Carl Glover . Each copy also contains a hand numbered card insert. Only 975 copies were printed and they sold-out within two days after the release date.
Five test pressings of the album on vinyl LP were produced, each consisting of two single sided LPs with plain white labels and no sleeve. The pressings were rejected due to poor sound quality and a vinyl LP edition was never released.
