Adventa



Shipping time: In stock | Free shipping within the US
Sounds, tones and lyrics of this album are inspired by the Icelandic classic "Aðventa" by Gunnar Gunnarsson, a saga about friendship, reliability, trust and harmony with nature. Every year in the dark and icy December, the farmhand Benedict, his dog Leó and the bellwether Eitill wander through the Icelandic high mountains to find lost sheep and save them from frostbite or starvation. Joachim Badenhorst & Mógil create a musical audio film about Nordic landscapes, ice, snow, cold, isolation, winds, elemental forces, finiteness, but also intimacy, friendship, warmth, silence, hope and dreams.Mógil is an Icelandic-Belgian ensemble whose music blends contemporary classical, folk, jazz, minimal and post-rock into its own universe. The world of Mógil is atmospheric, intimate and mysterious. Voices and instruments combine to form a unity. The tension between the crystal clear soprano of Heiða Árnadóttir and the contemporary instrumentation without percussion and double bass creates a characteristic sound, but not only through the timbre of the instruments, the interaction of voice, clarinet, violin, guitar, trumpet and keyboards, but especially through the individual playing art of the musicians Mógil convinces with her very own style.
