Hekla + SWIR + Myth

— The Cube
Unearthly beauty from Icelandic theremin witch Hekla
time:19:30
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

We're glacially stoked to welcome some of the most unearthly beauty we've ever heard onto the Cube stage, in the fleshscape bodyshape of ghostly Icelandic theremin witch Hekla!

A Berlin-residing Icelander, Hekla’s sparse, delicate, fractal music exists within these two worlds: dark and magical as Iceland’s permanight folklore; and (though beatless) as deeply sonic and intense as Berlin’s electronic scene. A long-term scholar of solo theremin, Hekla (shortened from her own name Hekla Magnúsdóttir) uses her instrument as an otherworldly and highly evocative Siren-call. A spectral, wailing, howling, lamenting yearning second-voice that underpins a soft vocal delivery, as if her studio had been haunted with a chorus of ghostly backing singers.

Support on the night will come from Bristol looping droning DIY synth experimentalists SWIR (traditional songs from far-flung places melded with synth-bleep-noise) and Myth
