Gyða Valtýsdóttir

Epicycle

Gyða Valtýsdóttir came to prominence with Icelandic electronic experimentalists, múm, in the 1990s and early 2000s. She left the band to study as a cellist and gained a twofold MA, as a classical player and a free improviser, and has journeyed with many bands and artists including Jónsi (of Sigur Ros fame), Aaron & Bryce Dessner (The National), Damien Rice, Colin Stetson and visual-artist Ragnar Kjartansson.

Her 2017 release, Epicycle, is a constellation of pieces by Schubert, Schumann, Messiaen, Partch, George Crumb and Hildegard von Bingen. The album topped ‘end of the year’ lists in her native country, received awards and accolades, inspiring one of Iceland’s most esteemed music critic to declare: ‘Here we have the rarest of things, an utterly unexplainable magic that goes way beyond the music itself, tugging ones heart forcefully.’ Arnar Eggert

For this special show, Gyða’s Epicycle trio will feature esteemed musicians Shahzad Ismaily & Julian Pastorius
