When I was a boy, and saw bright rows of icicles
In many lengths along a wall
I was dissappointed to find
That I could not play music upon them:
I ran my hand lightly across them
And they fell, tinkling.
I tell you this, young man, so that your expectations of life
Will not be too great.

Mi and L'au - s/t: I put on this austere album the other day as the snow began to fall, an icy counterpart to the weather outside.
Here are a couple favourites from the album:
A World in your Belly
I am thinking of Winter records: Lycia "Cold", Codeine "The White Birch", anything from Piano Magic, Tchaikovsky "Symphonie No. 1", Vivaldi "Four Seasons (3rd Mov.)... Does anyone have some favourite music for the Season?
About Mi and L'au
"Mi and L'au met in Paris a few years back. Mi is Finnish and was working as a model to make ends meet and L'au (who's French) was working in the music industry (soundtracks, I think). They fell deeply and immediately in love, and after a short period of moving from apartment to apartment in Paris, they gave everything up and decided to move to the woods in Finland, so they could be alone together in peace and to spend their time discovering each other and their music. They live in a small cabin in complete isolation with the barest of essentials and they spend virtually all their time making music together in solitude."
