about

This album takes its cue from the first conducting signal in the LIO's lexicon of signs, "hand out flat palm upward: play a sustained sound". With the musicians confined to their homes the idea was to create an orchestral sample library. Many LIO members supplied recordings of one minute of sustained sound which were then used to create the pieces presented here. (Compositional process proposed by Knut Aufermann)
