Skíðblaðnir

by Passepartout Duo

Duration: 19'41" // Piano, Percussion, Drums, and Electronics

This album is a collaborative project between Passepartout Duo, and the artist couple, Yannis Zhang and Yumo Wu, based in Beijing, China. The project came together during a two-month-long residency in Northern Iceland. The album is an encapsulation of our time living without sun, during the darkest part of the year, in the small fishing town of Ólafsfjörður. 

The end result will be a vinyl LP where one side is visual art, and the other is music. Our hope is that both sides standalone as cohesive artworks, but together create a compelling audio-visual experience. The visual art will be designed by Yannis Zhang and Yumo Wu in the coming months, and will use cyanotype prints that measured the sunlight in Iceland.

A music video for the track Hvalur is available here.
