Skúli Sverrisson: SERÍA II
"Sería II is the second installment in a series of releases from the versatile Icelandic musician Skúli Sverrisson. For the last two decades Skúli has approached his music with an open mind and collaborated with a number of well known artists, from a diverse background of musical genres.
The idea behind Sería is to mirror and reflect Skúli's sense of musical freedom and to create a playground for his fellow musicians. Sería I was released by 12 Tónar in 2006 and was chosen the alternative CD of the year in the Icelandic Music Awards.
On Sería II Skúli has called on some great musicians: Amedeo Pace, Ólöf Arnalds, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Eyvind Kang, Anthony Burr, Óskar Guðjónsson, Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir and Davíð Þór Jónsson. The music was specifically written with these musicians in mind and to be performed on viola, cello, clarinet, organ, harp, celeste, piano, bass, guitar, dobro, plus voices. Sería II was mostly recorded in the Sundlaugin in Mosfellsbær by Birgir Þór Jónsson, but also in New York, New Orleans and Berlin."
