georg holm and orri páll dýrason, members of sigur rós, have teamed up with icelandic composer hilmar örn hilmarsson and sigur rós touring guitarist kjartan holm to create a 72-minute instrumental album inspired by 100 years of archive footage of vaudeville, circuses and carnivals.
a pulsating work throughout, the 14 track album, which has been made to accompany the bbc documentary film "the show of shows," was written and recorded at sigur ros’s studio space in reykjavík, and features contributions from the celebrated south iceland chamber choir. the album was released on sigur rós’s own krunk imprint on aug 21 on double vinyl, cd and download.
