Cellist & composer
A new album of MIRT released this summer:
Björt Rùnars (Björt Rúnarsdóttir) is an icelandic cellist and composer based in Barcelona. With roots in the classical world and branches leading to experimentation she explores the world of music in its many forms with her cello.

In her music she generally plays with the sound of her cello processing its natural sound with pedals and effects, making webs of music looping and sometimes adding pre-recorded rythms and other material.
Sometimes with the cello solo and sometimes accompanied with her voice, keyboards and other instruments.
