2006 sees the first solo recording, “Mount A,” from cellist Hildur Gudnadóttir, released on 12 Tónar. Her background involves performing regularly with Nix Noltes band, múm, Pan Sonic, Schneider TM, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Skúli Sverrisson and recently even Throbbing Gristle. In her dreamy sound world she alone plays the cello, gamba, zither, khuur and the gamelan, and the new-classical basis develops into haunting themes of cello drones. This album truly sounds like nothing else and it leaves all genres behind. Her album is exciting, beautifully tranquil, and melancholic, and at times it makes you think of a lost place and times gone by in a world…lost in Hildurness. When playing live Hildur loops the cello layers on her laptop, altering the rigid notion of genre boundaries between classical and experimental electronic music.
