Hildur Guðnadóttir

Solo experimental, modern classical cello. A few tracks feature her voice. Check out Hauschka & Hildur Guðnadóttir / Pan Tone from Sonic Pieces in our library for a great live improv cello and piano performance.

***1. (7:30) Starts off slowly bowing back and forth with lots of empty space becomes deep rich ringing tones, slow drama that just deepens
*2. (1:23) Eerie high pitched vocalizations over low cello drone, fade out -:10
3. (2:53) Slow duet like
**4. (3:09) Mystical singing over simple cello melody
***5. (3:18) Deep dramatic sadness
6. (4:26) Dissonant voice and finger picked cello
7. (2:52) Dissonant anticipation, what is approaching?
8. (3:02) Quiet warming up, picking strings, slipping backwards
9. (2:17) Long discordant melody
****10. (2:46) Multiple voices layered over slow repetitive piano note, fake ending half way through, dramatic bowing and layered voices til end
*11. (2:20) Solitary, lonely memories
*12. (3:08) Long low questioning rasps, short higher bow intermittent
