Sven B. Schreiber Another precious item saved from the dark bottom of my wishlist... In the past, I've purchased several albums containing Icelandic folk-inspired music, and I hold them very dear. Nicoletta Favari and Christopher Salvito aka "Passepartout Duo" are not from Iceland, but they have traveled there, and captured the local folk spirit pretty well, weaving it impressively into their individual minimalist avantgarde music. Favorite track: Skötuselur.

    Nicoletta Favari, Christopher Salvito, Yumo Wu, and Yannis Zhang arrived in Ólafsfjörður, Iceland on December 1st, 2017. Positioned just half a degree south of the Arctic Circle, the four spent nine weeks without sun reflecting on the connections between artists, the environment, and the unique local community. A collaboration between two musicians and two visual artists, the end result is an album containing four original tracks alongside cyanotype prints, inspired by this small fishing town during winter.

While in Iceland, Yumo Wu used this technique to track changes in daylight hours during the winter. Each print sold here is 1 of an edition of 50 silk-screen reproductions of Yumo's original works.
