Elin - Undertones
After her first effort for Entity in 2004 ([NTT009] Elín - Impressions), Elín Anna Steinarsdóttir is very welcome to return with some of her newer material.
In these 9 tracks we get to experience a concrete, dynamic environment that could've easily originated in some of Iceland's dense forests or parks. Apparently, a dark fairytale unfolded at the time of recording, and there must've been loads of those because "Undertones" covers the whole synaesthetic approach by enabling a myriad of sound sources (percussion, found/recorded sounds, instruments, synthesizers, ...) to find common ground in an ever-expanding canvas of organic sonifications.
