Featuring Icelandic folk singer Ösp Eldjárn and our 2019 local co-curators Anil Sebastian and Cherif Hashizume, Hrím captures and portraits music beyond our imagination. Graceful and immaculate vocals; intricate and sophisticated harmonies; gnarly and organic electronics shape unique sonic landscapes.
Hrím’s music explores the interplay between intimacy and expanse. This is their debut album where the trio have collaborated with some of the world’s most innovative musicians including Björk’s percussionist and hang player Manu Delago.
Icelandic folk singer Ösp’s haunting and soaring vocals meet Japanese/Egyptian modular synthesist and coder Cherif Hashizume's organic electronics and Anil Sebastian’s choral sensibilities creating breathtaking and utterly unique sonic landscapes reminiscent of Sigúr Ros, Olafúr Arnalds, and Jon Hopkins. This is no surprise given that Cherif’s recent credits including Jon Hopkins, Björk and Brian Eno. The music of Hrím is interwoven with the masterful and utterly unique neo-classical arrangements of Anil Sebastian who is also the co-founder and director of London Contemporary Voices choir and who has recently featured alongside Imogen Heap on legendary Björk/Imogen Heap/Robyn producer Guy Sigsworth’s debut album Stet.
