2001 : 33 "frosti" and "aurora" by björk

listening to björk's vespertine, and particularly the conjunctive tracks "frosti" and "aurora," is like entering an immense and glittering landscape of brilliant crystals.

vulnerable, delicate tendrils wind around music boxes, interior worlds are revealed through bells, clavichord, harp, and voice. suddenly ice translates into emotion reminiscent of a wintry fairy tale that reveals every little particle of the heart through beautiful and sparkling refractions of sound.

these shimmering musical transparencies create dazzling effects that lead one into a world of fascination and reverie...
