Seidrúnar was originally composed on guitar a few months ago, but later on I got the idea to experiment a bit with one of my crystal singing bowl tuned in B which also was the main tone played on the guitar and it grew up to this 8 min track.

The words I wrote for this song are inspired from a journey to Northern Norway this past winter. A great friend of mine and I decided to take a 2 days drive up to a friend of her, sleeping in a cozy car along the road with sheep skins from my own sheep to keep us warm in the cold nights. We were welcomed by wonderful people in a lovely home and had some amazing, powerful and profound days of sisterhood expressing both our strength and vulnerability, weaving a bound between us through sharing, singing, dancing and drumming. This is also while being there that I got introduced for the first time to crystal singing bowls. So in many ways this song is connected to this beautiful meeting which remains a precious memory to me.
