This stunning video by Icelandic composer holds some deep mystery in the tension-filled interplay between the taught, constricted movements of a lone dancer among the endless sheets of ice and rocks that make up the island. Magnason’s composition is a deeply symphonic and synthetic work. Deep pulls of resonant strings, electronic texture and shading and a bass line that cuts very close to the quick. It’s an effortlessly beautiful composition that contains depths hidden within depths.
