Lost in Hildurness

I have been Lost in Hildurness (her album) since I had watched Hildur Gudnadottir in Konzerthaus Dortmund during ISEA 2010. She was playing her new halldorophone, an electro-acoustic string instrument in development by Halldór Úlfarsson. The instrument is loosely based on a cello allowing the player to color the sound of what is being played by feeding the vibrations of each string back into the body of the instrument: http://www.halldorulfarsson.info/halldorophone5
