U & I features 11 songs spanning a mix of techno, electro and classical music. The classical influences include Chopin, Puccini, Satie, Schubert and Stravinsky.

Fryderyk and I is a play on Fryderyk Chopin's Nocturne in Bb min, Op.9 No.1. The song reflects a dream where a piano note is suspended in time. Liu's Theme, sung by soprano Karin Côté, explores the "Signore, Ascolta" aria from Giacomo Puccini's Turandot opera - where Liu attempts to dissuade the prince she loves from taking Turandot's three riddle challenge. Pipe Dream is very loosely based on Erik Satie's 1st Gnossienne, contrasting the original piece's subtlety and gentleness with machine-like sounds and rhythms. Wandering Transmission catches the lost waves carrying Franz Schubert's Der Wanderer, while Oedipus Rex explores the rise and fall of Sophocles' tragic character through a mix of snippets from Stravinsky's opera oratorio of the same name.
