Jónsi teams up with Carl Michael von Hausswolff as Dark Morph

The duo will release an album next week.

Sigur RósJónsi has teamed up with Swedish composer Carl Michael von Hausswolff to form new project Dark Morph.

The pair will release an album on 10th May, and perform live with a sound installation in Venice this month.

The project began when the pair began making field recordings on board the research vessel Dardanella as it travelled around Fiji.

“While we were on the boat I started to take the recordings, manipulate them and mutate them into drones or other types of musical functions—so we could use the sounds as instruments for building compositions. We decided, ‘Let’s try not to have them sounding too much like real sounds, let’s turn them into something else.’ When I had done some drones, some long tones out of a bird or something, I gave it to Jónsi and he started to peel off certain types of melodious things, and then play it to me. And then we started to just throw the ball back and forth,” says von Hausswolff.

The track listing for the record is:

1. SO(NG)QE
2. URA DARDANELLA
3. BEKA TOVUTO
4. TOVUTO
5. KAVURA
6. WAI
7. BANI MANUMANU
8. BEKA YALO
