I knew Gyda Valtysdottir mainly through her sister, Kria Brekkan. They both sang in the icelandic band múm for a few years, until Gyda left to study back in Reykjavik, then in Switzerland. I was looking for Gyda for a while, until we end up being in Iceland at the same time. She was accompanied by the drummer Julian Sartorius, as part of their new project Arora & Urverk. Julian was previously drumming for Sophie Hunger as well as many other musical projects.
We planned to experiment a song in the famous Hallgrímskirkja, the main church of Reykjavik, at the time of the bells. We ended up right there on time, and their composition, semi improvised, grew from the sounds and samples of the city below.
