Icelandic singer and composer Högni will perform for the first time in Kiev with a string quartet. The ex-member of GusGus and the frontman of the indie group Hjaltalín will present in Kiev a solo album "Two Trains".
The two trains mentioned in the title of the album are the real cars - the locomotives Minør and Pionér, which in the early 20th century, during the construction of the Reykjavik harbor, displaced a huge amount of stone and gravel on the coast. Today they serve as relics of the past and are parked without action for centuries. According to Högni, Minør and Pionér are very important for him, since they embody a variety of embodiments of his personality during difficult periods of life. Modern day-to-day society is faced with a similar choice. The main thing is to come to the consciousness of the chosen path.
"Music in" Two Trains "is a reflection of my lifetime when I encountered myself," says Högni. - At that moment, I did not feel the difference between the personal and the universal, the absolute consciousness of the unconscious of life came. Perhaps this is a feeling that can not be transmitted as a watercolor, which is washed off by sea water. But this disappears mirage, which can be enjoyed before arriving at the last destination. "
On the cover of the album, a photograph of the artist was used by Anna Maggi, on which Sigurður Oddsson worked to reflect the idea of duality.
