'Þytur' was originally created with and for the sand dunes of Formby in the U.K. as part of my site-respondent installation 'Spherical White with Diamond' commissioned by Curated Place for the NATUR project in collaboration with National Trust Formby. Kent’s response to the work was a violin score, which consists of 9 parts that combine graphic, textual and written notation. His approach invites the performer to navigate through space and react from varying listening positions within the sound installation. 'Violin with Þytur' was premiered in Sweden as part of Inter Arts Center’s programming for Malmö Museum Night in 2020. (Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir, April 19, 2022) - released August 26, 2022
