Through the past few years Mirror have gained a wide reputation for some of the most beautiful unearthly drone music. Mirror is usually regarded as a duo of Christoph Heeman and Andrew Chalk. Their Viking Burial for a French Car consists, partly, of a recording made by Mirror in Dundee, Scotland in October 2003, where Mirror was extended with David Keenan (author of Englands Hidden Reverse), Gavin Laird and Alex Neilson. The concert was an accompaniment to the film Haxan, about witchcraft through the ages. In an epic thirty-seven minutes, Mirror extends beyond the drone music and comes up with an orchestral piece, in an almost Xenakis style: building a large crescendo and in the middle an explosion Afterwards the piece slowly follows its course in descrescendo. A surprising piece for Mirror, that would not have worked on a LP release. Its length requires an uninterrupted listening. Viking Burial for a French Car is one of the rarer CD releases by Mirror, who usually release their work on LP, and will surely appeal to those with a limited music budget.
