about

Cave In The Sky was formed out of the sonic explorations of multi-instrumentalist/producer/composer Cye Wood. The debut album Sönghellir, is being released by the Swedish label 1631 Recordings on the 26th of Feb 2016.

Thanks to a new work grant provided by the Australia Council for the Arts, Cye was able to complete the album at Greenhouse studios in Iceland with Paul Corley - mixing (Ben Frost, Tim Hecker, Daniel Lopatin) and Valgeir Sigurdsson - mastering (Bjork, Feist, Sigur Ros).

A few days before mixing began, Cye was exploring the Icelandic landscape and became lost looking for Snæfellsjökull Glacier. He finally reached the glacier late at night and stumbled upon the ancient location that would provide the name for the album's title track; Sönghellir (The Singing Cave). It was here that he made the final recordings for the album.

The album was largely was recorded in the hinterland of Byron Bay and features contributions from Tunji Beier (percussion), Purdie Wood (voice), Paul Corley (programming/sound design), Hamish Stuart (drums/percussion), James Haselwood (bass), Simon Green (percussion/harmonica) and Matt Ostila (percussion/bass).
