leyfdu ljosinu



Released: 10th May 2012


out of stock

the inimitable cellist delivers another astoundingly compelling recording of processed cello pieces.

2 long pieces of perfectly formed, moody, dark, atmospheric builders make up 'leyfdu ljosinu' (icelandic for 'allow the light'). recorded live at the music research centre, university of york by tony myatt, using a soundfield st450 ambisonic microphone & 2 neumann u87 microphones (it was not played in a concert environment & there was no audience) to be faithful to time & space - elements vital to the movement of sound - this album was recorded entirely live, with no post-tampering of the recordings.
