Né de la collaboration entre le musicien australien Hugo Race et la violoniste belge Catherine Graindorge, la musique de LDO forme un entrelacement onirique de violons et de sons électroniques sur lesquels se pose la voie sombre et incantatoire de Race. L'album propose un ensemble de chansons romantiques, articulées autour de paroles métaphysiques, d'expérimentations sonores et d'orchestrations rétro-baroques.
