And who shall go to the ball and what shall go to the ball scott walker


And Who Shall Go to the Ball? And What Shall Go to the Ball? is the second release on the label 4AD for singer and composer Scott Walker. The album was originally commissioned as a contemporary dance piece for disabled and non-disabled dance company CandoCo, choreographed by Rafael Bonachela. A video with excerpts from the performance can be found at the CandoCo website

In a press release from his record label, Walker describes the music in the following way: "Apart from a slow movement given over to solitude, the music is full of edgy and staccato shapes or cuts, reflecting how we cut up the world around us as a consequence of the shape of our bodies. How much of a body does an intelligence need to be potentially socialised in an age of ever-developing AI ? This is but one of many questions that informed the approach to the project."

The album was issued in just 2500 copies and will, according to the label, never be re-pressed.
