Sigur Rós - 'Route One'

On the longest day of summer 2016, Sigur Rós drove the whole way round Iceland’s ring road, broadcasting the entire 1332km journey live on youtube. The soundtrack to this “slow tv” adventure was created using generative music software taking the multi-track stems of the sigur rós song ‘óveður’ and endlessly reinventing them to create new and unpredictable musical directions in real time. The very best moments from the 24 hour journey have now been pared down to a single album of great and reflective beauty, available on all major streaming services.

And now...

We know how time-poor everyone is, but if you’ve got 25 hours on your hands, you should definitely check out the full ‘Route One’ soundtrack, which has just gone up on streaming services and we are claiming (til someone tells us otherwise) as the longest album out there, anywhere. The entire 1,480-minute continuous journey is also available to watch online...
