“The music on this LP is dedicated to the spiral groove of the vinyl record, which leads the stylus of the record player to circulate towards the center, revealing pulses and frequencies that we perceive as music or not music. It is also dedicated to the two-sidedness of the vinyl record and the activity of turning it around. All music composed, recorded and mixed by Gunnar Gunnsteinsson.”
