I was listening to this the other night and losing myself in the ambiance. This is the Riceboy Sleeps, music to float away to.
This is the project between Jonsi Birgisson (Sigur Ros) and Alex Somers. The music has come out of a four year music and art collaboration and serves as a soundtrack to a picture book entitled The Riceboy Sleeps, drawings and paintings, along with found photographs and bits and pieces from old books. I believe they only made 1000 hand numbered copies initially, but now you can order some through their label (Moss Stories).
How does it work? Thats what I want to know. Do you start turning pages when you hear the lion roar twice (or was that something else). Either way, I’d like to check it out.
Does anybody know anything about Parachutes?
