Architecture Music for Box Lovers

This beautiful box, Wohnhaus Ritter-Gey, can be found in the tiny country of Liechtenstein:
In my mind this Liechtenstein box makes a close connection with a piece of magical music that introduces the Breezeblock sets hosted by my favorite DJ of the moment, Mary Anne Hobbs, on BBC 1. The piece music is by Rebelski, a Manchester-based keyboardist. I purchased the track from the iTunes store, after Hobbs gave me its name (“Stickers On the Keys”) the night before last, and have listened to nothing else ever since. It’s not exceptional but simply composed of delicate and lyrical loops, like DJ Krush’s “Shin-Ki-Row” (“Mirage”). It’s the music of slow motion, of slow snow, of things that glow in the winter dusk.
