Her work plunges us into a world that is epic and solemn, chaotic and structured, archaic and industrial. Her last album, Dead Magic, recorded in a church in Copenhagen, once again puts mystical organ sounds center-stage. Her voice is almost possessed, equaling and even outdoing the colossal power of the organ. Sometimes she sounds hoarse, sometimes crystal-clear, sometimes animal-like. Anna von Hausswolff explores dark sounds between gothic folk, classical music and drone metal. The Swede cites compatriot Walter Ljungquist’s poetry for the promotion of her album: “Our time is a time deprived of silence and secrets; in their absence no legends can grow.” Anna von Hausswolff’s music is an antidote to this sentiment.
