Leyfðu Ljósinu (Icelandic for "Allow the light"), was recorded live at the Music Research Centre, University of York, in January by Tony Myatt, using a SoundField ST450 Ambisonic microphone and two Neumann U87 microphones.

As to be faithful to time and space - elements vital to the movement of sound - this album was recorded entirely live, with no post-tampering of the recording's sense of occasion.
