CTM 2023: Hekla, Daniel Blumberg

This double-bill concert will feature Icelandic artist Hekla, whose highly-expressive songs exist outside of any particular scene or genre. Hekla’s haunting, spectral soundscapes take listeners on a singular walk through folkloric magick, sonic black holes of corrosive beauty, and mesmerising darkness.

Appearing this night is also Daniel Blumberg, with the first performance of his striking new work GUT, an intensely personal piece of music that hails the next chapter in his artistic journey. Led by Blumberg’s soaring vocals and supported by an exploratory palette of bass harmonica, Steinberger bass, and drum machine, the artist channels a unique and captivating inner world with unflinching emotional directness. Following the release of two solo albums on Mute, Minus and On&On, and his Ivor Novello winning score for the film The World To Come (directed by Mona Fastvold), his third album will be released in Spring 2023 on Mute.
