Profile:
Hildur Guðnadóttir (b. 1982) is an Icelandic cellist and composer. A prolific indie artist, she is known for her numerous live and studio collaborations with Pan Sonic, Throbbing Gristle, múm, Ben Frost, Ilpo Väisänen's Angel, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Animal Collective, Sunn O))), Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Hauschka, the duo of BJ Nilsen & Stilluppsteypa, The Knife, and many others.

In 2007, Hildur released her debut solo album, Mount A under the Lost in Hildurness alias. She worked on it alone, playing and recording cello, viola, piano, zither, vibraphone and gamelan. A follow-up Without Sinking was released in 2009 by British label Touch, as well as her next works Leyfðu Ljósinu (a concert album capturing live performance without any editing or post-production) and her most recent album Saman, which melts the sounds of her voice and cello together to form a single instrument.

Guðnadóttir is also a vocal performer, and once she arranged a choir for Throbbing Gristle performances in Austria and UK. As a composer, she wrote a score for the play Sumardagur performed at Iceland's National Theatre, as well as the Danish film Kapringen.
