Bárujárn in 2009. Outside of being the only theremin player in the festival, she also stood out for her fearless playing on a difficult instrument. I was pleasantly surprised to find that she now has a collection of her solo compositions available on line, some of which even have a video as well. Hekla is definitely on her own 'island' of eerie electronica; she describes it as being a bit 'horrible' at times, but perfect for the moods she is trying to create. It would make a suitable soundtrack for the recent installments of The Matriarchy. The inverted cover art is Flippism at its finest. I got a big kick out of her in 2009 and an even bigger one from the six tracks on this short album. She has also supplied music for a dance piece video.
Here's a little video feature on Hekla from the Reykjavík Grapevine:
You can preview the album and order it as a download from her website.

What a sweetheart!
UPDATE: She'll be performing at Iceland Airwaves this year.
