FONETIKA

About FONETIKA

FONETIKA is an album made by five faroese artists, each with their own artistic
expression. The album is a collection of all kinds of genres ranging from classical and
ambient music, to beats, soft ballads and pop/funk. Entering a delicate soundscape
Líggjas’ music is set at a leisurely pace, reeling you in with simplistic piano melodies and
vocals floating around in the air. Katrina’s music is playful, organic and experimental,
combining soft vocals and light-hearted melodies with odd-time rhythms and peculiar
sounding sequences. Sissal’s music can be described as a result of raw and sincere
musical composition. The vocals are crucial for her artistry as is evident in her use of
effects in her music. With a classical approach, Jákup’s music is ominous and intense
while conveying a battle between instruments that is led by a soulful voice. Through his
usage of electronical manipulation, Per’s music demonstrates the powers of minimalistic
melodies and exhibits an ambient and exploring atmosphere.
