Maarja Nuut’s album UNE MEELES (In the Hold of a Dream) explores the boundary between reality and dreams. “For me, music and the images and stories hidden in it offer an opportunity to travel from one reality to another, visit a place where everything is possible,” she explains. "I clearly remember the times when I’ve had lucid dreams. It is an experience where the reality and imagination get mixed up and you can choose where, how and in which direction you move. You are away but very much present at the same time.”

UNE MEELES proposes a melancholic, haunting evocation of Nuut’s dreamworld, offering the listener the ability to fluidly travel between the artist’s realities, whether rooted in resurfaced Estonian mysticism, experimental soundscapes, or classic storytelling bent to electronic, looping currents. Her latest offering directly builds off of motifs from her previous album Soolo (2013), which culled inspiration from her research into early 20th century field recordings, and their interplay with contemporary vocal harmonies.

Recorded in 2015 in a woodlands-nestled studio in the center of Tallinn near Nuut’s home, In the Hold of a Dream is the result of disciplined studio practice. Nuut’s technique teeters between a hypnotic trance of live-looping while creating room for an almost psychedelic, improvised spontaneity within each track. All tracks were authored and recorded by Nuut, while audio engineer Kaur Kenk mastered the project, and also contributed to building out the technical setup and the live stage translation of the studio concept.
