At the Heart of a Selkie
Today marks the first album release by TUTL in 2016, and it is a special one, done in collaboration with DR, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. On the album, titled "At the Heart of a Selkie," singer/songwriter Eivør along with writer Marjun Syderbø Kjælnes, composer/arranger Peter Jensen, the Danish National Vocal Ensemble and the Danish Radio Big Band interprets a musical drama rooted in the nordic legend of the transformation of the Seal Woman, the sea, love – and the conflict of nature versus civilisation.

"At the Heart of a Selkie" is a musical retelling of the nordic Legend of the Seal Woman; it is abstract but also highly empathetic. 

 

A tale with action and a moral presented in a unique sonic landscape, created by sound artist Morten Büchert with samples of nature, and hymns by Thomas Kingo resonating in the background. 

 

The Legend of the Seal Woman has been commissioned by the Danish Radio Big Band and the Danish National Vocal Ensemble.

 

When the work was premiered in November 2014, one reviewer wrote: “As soon as the first notes were struck, the listener was transported to the untamed roaring of the sea around rocky Nordic coasts, and with Eivør’s characterful song and powerfully present stage performance one was not in doubt for a single second that she had just risen from the sea as the Seal Woman of the legend.”
