Original soundtrack to the BBC documentary film "The Show of Shows”
Two-thirds of Sigur Ros — bass player Georg Holm and drummer Orri Pall Dyrason — have teamed up with Icelandic composer Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson and Sigur Ros' touring guitarist, and Georg's brother, Kjartan Holm, to create an uninterrupted 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 forthcoming BBC documentary film The Show of Shows, was written and recorded at Sigur Ros' new studio space in Reykjavik, and features contributions from the celebrated South Iceland Chamber Choir.
