[chuck] in Art, Hildur Gudnadottir

Icelandic cellist and composer Hildur Gudnadottir has just released a spectacular new album, Leyfdu Ljosinu (Icelandic for "Allow the Light"). Recorded live in a single take with no post-production manipulations, the work uses electronics and loops to multiply her cello and voice into a stark, yet breathtaking, world of sound. Spacious. Buoyant. This is an amazing piece of music.
