One Question Interviews: Kælan Mikla

Solveig Matthildur (Kælan Mikla)

SPB: How do fine arts, besides music, influence your approach to making music?

Matthildur: Art for me is like taking something from everyday life, a landscape, a situation, a thought, a dream or whatever you want to take, process it and put it out in another form. And I see it like all art and creations are divided by the senses. You can see them in fine art, films and performances, listen to them in music and poetry, feel them in sculptures and enter installations, live music performance and more. So artists are maybe a lot like instruments or a processor of reality. You put an idea or a thing to the input of the artist, they process it and from the output comes another version of that idea or a thing.
