Four percussionists unfolded a dark magical atmosphere in Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s “Aura”; with gently brushed sounds of a drumhead, with vibraphones stroked by bows and with further mysterious sensations.
Rainer Koehl, Die Rheinpfalz,28/04/2018
This is music of wonder, filled with sustained, consoling sounds that have lots of space between them. Totally magical in its multi-dimensionality, AURA virtually glows from within. Far too wondrous to be pigeonholed as “meditative”, AURA is one of the compositions in which you’ll discover new things – new worlds, even – with repeated listening.
Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile,02/07/2017
