Album Review

Reviewed 2006-11-06 
Slow modern classical, bordering soundtrack and new age. Icelandic composer - the music is fittingly? sparse and expansive. I like it the more I listen to it. Originally written to accompany a dance piece. Track 5 is my fav. Tracks start very quiet or silent for up to a whole minute, and some end very quiet. FCC clean.

1, 3 and 4 are all similar, instrumental. 2. Samples an old voice recording about doing maintenance on a computer. Sparse music. *5. Includes a recording of an old singing computer – it's kinda cool here. Fullest track. There are very soft and gorgeous real singers at times, too.
