  • An interesting thing about these tracks is that they can all be played at the same time to form one incredible polyphonic masterpiece
  • I think that this is more than a gimmick, because it means that even when the tracks are played one after another they are in perfect harmony with each other and the EP as a whole fits together very well

      This EP was originally composed for a dance piece by Merce Cunningham. The band famous for their innovative use of instruments has developed this piece mainly for Piano, Toy Piano, Vocal Samples and, interestingly, miked up ballet shoes.

      The three tracks develop when played form start to finish, making an immersive 20 minute composition.

      The result is chillingly fragmented and frightening.

      This EP is best listened to in complete darkness


      with a quality pair of headphones.

      • three tracks build up very well from the quietest first track ‘Ba Ba’ which fades in, to ‘Ti Ki’ the longest with sounds like life support machines and noises you hear in the night as a child.

        The final track ‘Di Do’ contains the only spoken words: ‘Ba ba, ti ki, di do, which are used very effectively to build up the texture gradually until it is very rhythmical.

        The

        mixing of this track has also been very effective, keeping the spoken words at the front of the texture at all times and moving them around your head.

        This adds yet another scary feel to the EP when played late at night, because one has scary voices surrounding them.

        This is followed by screeching synth sounds that do nothing to ease the tension.

        Sigur Ros evoke the emotion perfectly with this astounding composition.
