The first album for 4AD from this Icelandic composer is an expanded version of a performance piece originally written for the dancer and choreographer Erna Omarsdottir, and which has been performed in more than 40 European cities. This new incarnation was scored for a 60-piece string orchestra and the four original movements were joined by a completely new finale. The final mix incorporates electronics and vintage reel-to-reel recordings of the IBM 1401 mainframe computer which inspired the piece in the first place. "Essential for all fans of stately ambience" - Uncut. "Some of the pieces recall the similarly melancholy electronic touch that infused the most desolate moments of Radiohead's 'Kid A'" - Pitchfork.
