Hildur Gudnadottir and Hauschka – black6

First off, this is a very exciting collaboration. Both artists have long been favourites and when we heard they were doing an album together the thought of Hildur Gudnadottir’s introspective cello-led soundscapes allied to Hauschka’s distinctively percussive prepared piano was an intriguing one. The first track released from their album, Pan Tone, witnesses the artists’ contrasting styles married in a sublime mixture of light and shade; Gudnadottir’s haunting atmospherics underpin, while Hauschka’s piano spins a delicate web that compliments its denser sibling beautifully. It promises much for the album, which is out on Berlin label, Sonic Pieces, on Friday.
