Church II is an instrumental adaption of Church from Jacob Kirkegaard's album "4 Rooms" on Touch, 2006) which was originally composed from ambient and resonance recordings of an abandoned church inside the radioactive zone in Chernobyl

Labyrinthitis II is an instrumental adaption of Labyrinthitis (Touch, 2008) - a canon of otoacoustic tones generated by the artist's own ears.

Like most of Kirkegaard's sound works, both pieces are characterized by a strong focus on methodology, and by the artist's wish to omit any deliberate emotional or "musical" intention
