Shot over three days in Iceland on a Canon 5D with two lenses. We had a tiny budget, about £1000, so there was literally no crew or equipment. Just me, the talent, my camera, and a DSLR cage my dad made!

BIO
The vocalist and electronic musician ÍRiS creates lyrical arrangements, where her voice that has been described as velvety, dynamic and haunting, leads the music using loops and effects to create an extension of the vocal instrumentation.

Penumbra (debut album) was released late 2013, which stands for the region where complete shadow and illumination meet - where musical contrasts connect. The album, that portrayed a fusion of folk, jazz, pop and experimental vocals, was depicted by critics as a sentimental musical journey, shrouded in an aura of mystery.
On the album ÍRiS explores various musical contrasts by mixing together traditional instruments such as cello and piano with more contemporary electronic sounds. As well as experimenting with the full range of sounds available from both instruments and items found in everyday life. From this process the title of the album was born, "Penumbra", which stands for the region where complete shadow and illumination meet - where musical contrasts connect.
