Lilja is thought to be one of the oldest surviving Icelandic folk tunes. This tonally ambiguous melody was given to a religious poem called Lilja meaning Lily, written by Eysteinn Ásgrímsson in the fourteenth century. The original poem contains over 100 verses.

The audio and visuals were recorded by Eloisa-Fleur at the Tvísöngur sound sculpture, Seyðisfjörður, on 23 October 2015. The five differently sized concrete interconnected domes each resonate to one of the five tones in Icelandic traditional folk song, working as a natural amplifier. Each layer of the multi-track is recorded in a different acoustic dome. The sculpture was built in 2012 by artist Lukas Khnes.
