Kristín has been filming little bits of what we’ve been doing,
like this very Á-tonal rehearsal….
‘Á’ [au] meaning ‘stream’ in Icelandic, ‘Au’ is Aurum or Gold, symbolising the forceful energy of Elements before the dawn of human kind. It’s an exclamated ‘á!’ in Dutch. First letter of the alphabet. Bringing it all down to the bare minimum of just being. A waterfall of sfz frequencies.
First tests of singing with throat microphones and effects processing – the very long delays and echoes in ‘Eru Ur’ — at Gerðarsafn Kópavogur Art Museum.
