Sigur Ros - Ba Ba Ti Ki Di Do
Icelanders Sigur Ros are here again with their EP named Ba Ba Ti Ki Di Do. It is actually a single 20 minute ambient song broken up into three parts. This EP has been written as a composition for Merce Cunningham’s dance piece “Split Sides”.

As usually Sigur Ros chose experimental approach for this recording. As instruments they used piano, music box, miked-up ballet shoes and electronic playback.

The music and choreography of split sides were composed independently of each other and were first introduced on the premiere night on 14th October 2003 in the Brooklyn academy of music.

The song’s final chapter features cut-up distorted samples of choreographer Merce Cunningham’s voice, with an organ in the background and it slowly builds up into a beat followed by some strange electronic noise.

Beautifully Dreamy.

The Second Half of “Split Sides” was composed by Radiohead.
