Eydís Evensen (IS)
Music has been a part of Eydís Evensen’s life from a very early age. A classically-trained pianist and post-classical composer, Eydís composed her very first piece of music on the instrument – about a storm that was raging outside – when she was seven. Although Eydís cites her home country of Iceland as still being a huge influence on her music, she is also profoundly inspired by forces of nature as well as artists such as Philip Glass and Thom Yorke. But the real driving force behind her mournful, melancholic and incredibly beautiful arrangements is her own emotions, and having the full freedom to explore those feelings musically however she wants, while also attempting to break free from regular forms of music.
