Olof Arnalds & Skuli Sverrisson
Skuli Sverrissons long awaited solo album, Sera, was recently released by 12 Tnar. He has been living in New york for a long time but has been spending more and more time in Iceland lately. He is already a formidable influence on the new generation of Icelandic musicians.
Skuli has enjoyed a long and distinguised musical partnership with Laurie Anderson, but he has also teamed up with a number of other artists. Currently he's working with Sakamoto, Blonde Readhead, Jim Black, Anthony Burr, Kitchen Motors etc.
His new release, Sera, has been two years in the making process and it is Skulis second solo album. It's a stunning work, a record containing thirteen songs written by Skuli - almost assured to capture the listeners mind for a magnificent sonic journey.
Many exceptional musicians accompany Skli on this voyage; long time friends such as Amadeo Pace (Blonde Redhead), Anthony Burr, Eyvind Kang, Peter Scherer, Ted Reichmann, Hildur Ingveldardttir Gunadttir, Jhann Jhannsson, Hilmar Jensson and lf Arnalds who sings three songs to her own lyrics. Laurie Anderson makes a special guest appearance on the album, but Skuli has worked as her musical director for many years.
Recordings were made in Reykjavik and New York. Recording engineers along with Skuli were Anthony Burr, Orri Jnsson (Slowblow) and Gunnar Tynes (mm). Sera is nominated for the Icelandic Music Awards as Best Album and was chosen the Album of the Year by Icelands dominant newspaper, Morgunbladid.
