Gabbarein – Så Stille

(Official Music Video)

Gabbarein is Cecilie Hafstad and Christopher Bono. Their self titled debut album is out now on Our Silent Canvas Records.


About the track, singer Cecilie shares: “‘Alt er så mørkt, alt er så stille her’ means: Everything is so dark, everything is so quiet here. This is a track about leaving a situation and moving into a new one. The feeling of it, the void in between, like a pause between breaths. How quiet and dark it all seems, how scary “the new” is and how sad it is leaving, knowing that nothing will be the same again. That stillness and pause, that vacuum, when you know it’s over. In that moment everything stands still, like the darkness of night, it can be scary and dark but the stars are still shining.”


“Så Stille” video features the motion graphics art of Pao Olea, interwoven amongst footage of singer Cecilie Hafstad and the white reindeer which inspired the project’s title. Gabbarein translates to “White Reindeer” in the Sámi language – the reindeer visited the duo during their improvisational recording session in the Nordic town of Lyngen, on a fjord within the Arctic Circle and was an inspiration for Cecilie during the recording process.


Pao Olea shares: “This video is a journey through a spiritual realm, where energy shines as a beacon of hope in the darkness. It’s witnessing its transformative power as it guides us through the unknown, where even in the silence and darkness, the stars continue to shine. These visuals were crafted using real-time particle generation in TouchDesigner, where they sway and morph in sync with the music.”
