The voice is an amazing instrument. And each voice is different. Voices can be charmed to make all kinds of sounds and noises. Mari Kvien Brunvoll has an intimate relationship to her voice. The way she works with it sometimes has a slight similarity to Björk: expressive, eager to experiment, elementary. The longing in her voice may be explained by the fact that Brunvoll comes from the mountains and grew up by the sea. Just like one’s gaze from the shore only breaks at the horizon, this singer also seems to have no boundaries in sound. Mari Kvien Brunvoll, however, does not fit into the image of the elf-like Nordic musicians which has become somewhat a cliché. She much more plays with the impossibilities of the human voice and with different styles that melt together within her. All sorts of instruments accompany her on stage, ranging from the zither to bells. She uses electronic equipment to loop her singing and creates samples with alienating effects. The harmonies in her head must be for several voices. In her live performances, she translates these inner sounds into music, whilst sitting cross-legged on stage amidst all her tools.
