Lately the Icelandic group Sigur Ros have spent a fair bit of time writing music for dance pieces. As well as 22° Lunar Halo - the score they created for a new choreography by Cheng Tsung-Lung - les Ros also turned out Variations On Darkness for a performance by the Icelandic Dance Company at their own Nordur og nidur festival. Comprising of new material and re-workings of some older tracks, the two side-long pieces of Variations On Darkness find the band at their most expressive and ambitious. Everything from icy drone to broiling noise to the organic power electronics of Ben Frost get a look-in here.
