Artist: Hugar Gol Ltd Ogv

More Info:

The Vasulka Effect is a documentary portraying the life and work of pioneers of video art Steina and Woody Vasulka. Their history with video dates back to the late 60's when they lived and worked in New York. Some have called them the grandparents of the 'YouTube generation', others: 'grandparents of video art', seem forgotten by the art world. Through a series of impromptu sessions, Bergur _orisson and Petur Jonsson, the multi-instrumentalists responsible for the rich and dreamy sounds of Hugar, recorded and released their independent self-titled debut in 2014. The sweepingly multi-layered and ethereally ambient album quickly amassed an organic following of listeners and has since racked up over 30 million streams worldwide on Spotify alone. In addition to their new album Hugar have composed a score for the Islandic film The Vasulka Effect, premiering at Nordisk Panorama Film Festival 21 Sept 2020. This is a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on gold & transparent swirled vinyl.
