    Notable Recordings of 2022 – The New Yorker
    Album of the Year 2022 »It’s hands down one of the most unique, special, haunting and above all stunning pieces of music I’ve heard all year« 5:4

    Written to mark the completion of Bára Gísladóttir’s studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, VÍDDIR was first performed in and with the vast acoustic of Grundtvig’s Church in Copenhagen in February 2020. From its first sounds of five bass flautists screaming, ‘as strong as possible’, into their instruments, it is clear that VÍDDIR is not a light-hearted leap into a new life. It is a black night of a piece. An abyss, into which Gísladóttir has dived and reached deeply. An unbroken hour in length, it returns again and again to its own dark light. Recorded live at Dark Music Days, Hallgrímskirkja, Reykjavík, 2022
