The new record by Hildur Gudnadottir is remarkable.  It was recorded as a single live performance, with no post-production tampering – all the sound treatment happened in-performance.

Imagine a space between Zoe Keating’s driftier experiments and Julianna Barwick’s surreal single-voice choruses.  It’s an incredibly beautiful, weightless piece of music that develops less like a composition and more like a weather system.  I’ve listened to it a few times a day for a few days, and am still finding new cloud formations in it.

 

Among many other places, it can be purchased from the label.
