The late Johann Johannsson did a great many great things over the course of his career. Among them was this album, one of the most emotionally intense records with one of the most emotionally detached titles. IBM 1401, A User’s Manual pays tribute to the composer’s father using recordings of the titular computer and some seriously luscious and emotive string arrangements. A modern classic.

Amazing work from a musician who constantly pushes the boundaries of modern classical music. The IBM talk can be a little off-putting from the outside but this is a release that needs more than one listen to be appreciated. The stunning 'The Sun's Gone Dim and the Sky's Turned Black' closes a release that is anything but unmoving but will not be to everyone's ears.
