about

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 Skúli Sverrisson guests on “Heima”.

This is Hildur’s 4th album for Touch, after “Without Sinking”, “Mount A” and "Leyfðu Ljósinu”.

All tracks composed, performed and recorded by Hildur Guðnadóttir in Berlin, except Heyr Himnasmiður (track 4), composed by Þorkell Sigurbjörnsson, lyrics by Kolbeinn Tumason. Cello made by David Wiebe in 1991. [Cello nr 49]

Track 6, bass by Skúli Sverrisson, 6 string fretted cello built by Hans Jóhannsson, resonated through two grand pianos.

Tracks 1, 4 and 6 recorded by Francesco Donadello.

All tracks mixed by Francesco Donadello and Hildur Guðnadóttir at Vox-Ton Studio, Berlin.
