Sigur Rós & Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson - Odin's raven magic (Live at the Barbican Hall 21-04-02)

A magnificent performance by Sigur Rós & Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, accompanied by a string and brass orchestra and choir, as well as Steindor Andersen, chanting the 13th century icelandic poem "Odin's raven magic", upon which the piece is based.

Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson: "We never really made the transition to the modern world. So we are much more in touch with the occult - the invisible is so much with us. That is why Iceland is one of the spiritual centres of the world""
