Johanna Elina Sulkunen & Hilmar Jensson @ Mengi, Reykjavik 12.12.2015

«Duo encounters I » (FIN/IS)

HIlmar Jensson – guitar & Johanna Elina Sulkunen – vocal

A new collaboration with a Copenhagen based Finnish vocalist Johanna Elina Sulkunen and the Icelandic guitar player Hilmar Jensson. Mixture of composed and free improvised music create indistinguishable stories with diverse sounds of guitar and voice and their endless possibilities. Electronic, and diverse, sometimes even machine -like guitar sounds contrast with strong and personal vocal work of Johanna. Experimental, strong and beautiful.

The duo first met when Hilmar collaborated with Nordic Danish Grammy-winning improvising vocal group IKI (that Johanna is part of) on their second album «Lava» that was recorded in Iceland.

«Encounters I» is the first part of a more extensive project of Johanna Elina Sulkunen, who is exploring different aspects of duo playing in various settings.

Finnska söngkonan Jóhanna Elina Sulkunen og Hilmar Jensson, gítarleikari, unnu að hljóðritunum á plötu og komu fram í fyrsta sinn opinberlega sem dúó á þessum tónleikum í Mengi. Leiðir þeirra lágu saman í gegnum hinn margverðlaunaða raddspunahóp IKI þar sem Johanna er meðlimur en Hilmar lék með hópnum inn á plötuna Lava sem var hljóðrituð á Íslandi.

Á tónleikunum í Mengi hljómaði hvort tveggja spunnin og samin tónlist þar sem gítarinn og mannsröddin og endalausir möguleikar þessara tveggja hljóðgjafa voru rannsakaðir.
