More Info

"This album is about resonance: on 'Saman', which means 'Together', Hildur melts her voice with her cello, connecting the two instruments together. The result is a highly involving and moving album, recorded, mixed and mastered in Berlin. Hildur's sylph-like vocals contrast beautifully with rich cello tones, resolving the tension between light and dark to produce a unique listening experience. Renowned bassist Skli Sverrisson guests on 'Heima'. This is Hildur's 4th album for Touch, after 'Without Sinking', 'Mount A' and Leyfdu Ljsinu'. All tracks composed, performed and recorded by Hildur Gudnadttir in Berlin, except Heyr Himnasmiour (track 4), composed by orkell Sigurbjrnsson, lyrics by Kolbeinn Tumason. Track 6, bass by Skli Sverrisson. Tracks 1, 4 and 6 recorded by Francesco Donadello. All tracks mixed by Francesco Donadello and Hildur Gudnadttir at Vox-Ton Studio, Berlin." [label info]
