Kom skapari - Come Creator (2017)

Come Creator is an album with new Icelandic compositions commissioned for the South Iceland Chamber Choir. The majority of the composers comes from a pop music background while the choir has showcased and published contemporary music, so the outcome is both surprising and

entertaining.

The album contains music composed by Kjartan Sveinsson, Snorri Hallgrímsson, Bára Grímsdóttir, Páll Ragnar Pálsson, Vala Gestsdóttir, Haukur Tómasson, Benedikt Hermannsson, Örlygur Benediktsson, Ragnhildur Gísladóttir, Magga Stína, Georg Kári Hilmarsson, and Páll Guðmundsson á Húsafelli.

Work on the album started in 2012 and part of the music was premiered at Dark Music Days in Iceland in February that year. Jonas Sen, a renowned Icelandic music critic, chose the concert as the best choir concert of the year 2012.

The album was recorded over the course of three years at Sundlaugin studios in Iceland and is published by Smekkleysa - Bad Taste Music, with support from Tónlistarsjóður, Hljóðritasjóður, and SASS.
