Incredibly captivating to listen to

“… a magical and swarming, yet immensely translucent piece of music”

“Incredibly captivating to listen to”

“Raging soundscapes are exploding to the imagery of the poems and the glowing repetitions. And vibrant, almost stagnant sounds, telling us about a human nature breathing with the powers of the ocean and the nature”

It comes creeping towards you like a whirl at sea

“It comes creeping towards you like a whirl at sea.”

“The musical worlds become fused in the hands of Egilstrøð and Madsen, the symphony orchestra itself is softly mouldable in their hands. The instrumentation is vivid and playful, and contains an intense darkness when needed.”

“Everything seems to be integrated, organic and a part of a whole. It is convincingly done considering the many different elements in the work.”

beautiful moments of goosebumps

“Anyone who dares to take a look into the abyss of Beinta’s soul will be rewarded with eerily beautiful moments of goosebumps”
