about

Composed for the new Netflix hit series Katla, Icelandic multi-instrumentalist and composer Högni Egilsson has created ‘Sensus Terrae (Voice of Katla)’; a sonic exploration bringing the heart of the volcano to life.

Using seismic data, the renowned artist, formerly of GusGus, has teamed up with lead actor and singer GDRN, creating something otherworldly.

"Inside Katla, there are eight active areas that have their own earthquake frequency. We took these frequencies and transform them into musical expressions. The volcanic activity is actually a conversation between these eight areas – eight voices inside Katla.”

Stop what you’re doing, put on your headphones, and let the volcano Katla sing you the song of her people.

lyrics

ég sé heima alla
er hulinn myrkri og sól
ég er allra hvela dreki
þitt bergmál og þúsund storma skjól

..jöklar síga, hafið rís
hörfa dýrin og gróður
rofna himna, hopar ís
heimskautanna sjóður

öld þagnar
framkallar
hörfandi skugga sem talar
veggjana skrift;

ég dvel hjá þér sem dularvera hljóð
næðandi tunga í guðageimi
gnæfandi orð í hugarheimi

allt hleypir í strand
það ber enginn kennsl á beinin
sem skola á land
