Islas Resonantes is Yu Lin Humm's debut solo cello album.
The music was composed during a travel that Yu Lin took in 2019 along the Orinoco River, the natural border between Colombia and Venezuela. Back in Portugal, Yu Lin performed Islas Resonantes for the first time live at Galeria Zé de Bois, before Sarah Davachi’s set. In February 2022, Yu Lin recorded the album in a metal tank with a round 200sqm. amplitude that allowed 28 seconds of reverb. In 2023, Yu Lin composed and arranged the album for 3 cellos, adding two voices to the original compositions and a final bonus track with cello and singing.
This Summer 2023 - Yu Lin produced the vinyl and the underwater music video to release the two album editions in November 2023 with a tour in Europe.
We are delighted to host the launch of the vinyl at Opia featuring a live solo concert in store
