On Tara Nome Doyle’s recent album, »Værmin«, »Caterpillar« is a big, opulent piece; the new string quartet version on her upcoming EP »æ« reveals nuances of fragility and power. It has been arranged by the Icelandic composer and conductor Viktor Orri Árnason whose score was recorded by the Belgian Echo Collective in Brussels. Doyle wanted to approach her work from a different angle, to further explore the album’s melodies and the relationship between the musical accompaniment and her singing. Her new exploration of her latest album, in form of the upcoming EP “æ”, will be available soon!
