Great review for Gísladóttir

"Everything about it was elemental, eternal, indomitable." - The music blog 5:4 reviews Bára Gísladóttir's 'Animals of your pasture'.

Bára Gísladóttir's 'Animals of your pasture' was performed by the Riot Ensemble at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in November 2021.

The music blog 5:4 writes:

"At one pole was Bára Gísladóttir, whose Animals of your pasture was rooted in a landscape of complex, rich harmony. “Landscape” seems entirely the right word for music with soaring, intimidating, jagged peaks – covered with a myriad tiny details – interspersed with sparse, arid wilderness. The latter aspect sometimes resembled drone music, though coalescing around multiple suspended tones rather than one; the former occurred as glorious, razor-sharp eruptions and noise surges. Everything about it was elemental, eternal, indomitable."
