art features Icelandic electronic composer Magnús Blöndal Jóhannsson

an Icelandic choir performing Barry's (treated) microtonal, urgent score
is slowly infiltrated, first with an electronic breath and then by
well-rounded bass that evolves into a satisfactory crescendo before the
scary humhum returns... highly successful" --Vital Weekly.
