the Múm co-founder collects new and unique visions of nine classical pieces making for gorgeous and otherworldly music both ancient and contemporary in feel.

the tracks cover a range broad enough to include the great master Sergei Prokofiev, through to 20th century experimental music theorist Harry Partch, via the “Seikilos Epitaph” - the oldest known surviving musical composition in the world. the album is the perfect summation of Valtysdottir’s background, indie and classical, having also been a student of the Rimsky-Korsakov State Conservatory in St. Petersburg. beguiling stuff riyl sigur ros, Julia holter, and Shahzad Ismaily. “Eerie and spacious, holding onto the supernatural quality that has always characterized múm’s work while spinning off in new (or, more specifically, old) directions” - Stereogum, “It’s evocative, moving, and reminds you that the power of music transcends time and space.” - Reykjavik Grapevine
