Denmark string duo Lueenas has teamed up with video artist Jonas Bentzen on a new video for a piece entitled “NYX.” Their self-titled album landed Nov. 4 on Barkhausen Recordings.
“’Nyx’ conjures the story of Hemera’s mother, the Goddess of Night, born from Chaos and feared by all, even Zeus,” according to the notes that accompany the video. “Through distorted and shrieking layers of violin, and the mammoth double bass figures, she carries at once a brutal wrath and conciliatory power. Transforming into upward blazing howls, we are reminded that there is beauty in darkness.”
