Clockworking…Slow tempos, patiently repetitive formal patterns and an expansive sense of physical space that can be either intoxicating or torpid (at least at first) — but out of those placid landscapes emerge wonderful epiphanies. Raindamage… provocative……Nordic Affect merits praise for advancing the chamber recording concept in such imaginative manner. Ron Schepper, Textura Raindamage is an album best appreciated on headphones, when you’ve got the time to really let it seep into your brain. Phil Freeman, Burning Ambulance. Icelandic award winning ensemble Nordic Affect has been hailed as ‘multi-disciplinary force of nature’ (A Closer Listen), as gem in Iceland’s music life (Frettablaðið) and for ‘ineffable synergy between the performers’ (San Francisco Classical Voice). Nordic Affect releases now its third album on the Sono Luminus label. Titled H e (a) r the album features 7 world premiere recordings, including a soundscape which lends its title to the album by the group’s artistic director; composer and violinist Halla Steinunn Stefansdottir. The work H e (a) r connects to ecology, acoustics and embodiment; drawing on encounters and what happens in the connection. Many of the instrumental works are a continuation of Nordic Affect’s longstanding collaboration with some of the exciting talent to emerge out of Iceland in recent years, many of which were featured on the 2015, release Clockworking. The title track was chosen for NPR's Songs We Love series and featured in various best-of-the-year lists, including Steve Smith’s for Night After Night, The Chicago Reader, and The New Yorker. H e (a) r includes: Spirals and Loom by Maria Huld Markan Sigfúsdottir. In addition to composing her own music, Ms. Markan Sigfúsdottir has toured the world with indie band amiina and recorded and collaborated with a range of other bands and artists. Her compositions have been performed in Iceland, Australia, Europe and the US. A continuation of the solo work 2 Circles, found on the Clockworking album, is Point of Departure by composer, cello player, and singer Hildur Guðnadottir. Hildur has been manifesting herself at the forefront of experimental pop and contemporary music (e.g. with the band múm). Her output has encompassed four solo albums, and numerous works for theatre, dance performances and films. H e (a) r also features Reflections and Impressions by Anna Thorvaldsdottir, a recipient of Lincoln Center’s 2018 Emerging Artist Award and 2018 Martin E. Segal Award. Anna Thorvaldsdottir frequently works with large sonic structures that tend to reveal the presence of a vast variety of sustained sound materials, reflecting her sense of imaginative listening to landscapes and nature. A new collaboration is presented through Warm life at the foot of the iceberg by the Estonian Mirjam Tally. Sound is central to the Estonian MirjamTally’s creations. Her music is a flow of playful contrasts where a sense of humour and poetic use of sound are blended to mix. Her music has been performed in over 20 countries and earned her various accolades, including the 2018 Swedish Manifest prize.
