Watch Sigur Rós soundtrack an Icelandic art installation

‘Örævi’ was part of Reykjavik Winter Lights Festival.

Late last year, Sigur Rós soundtracked a performance by the Icelandic Dance Company for their own NORÐUR OG NIÐUR festival, and they’ve recently been back on soundtrack duties.

They’ve soundtracked a new art installation in Reykjavik. As Pitchfork reports, the piece, called ‘Örævi’ was created by the Iceland Dance Company, Valdimar Johansson, Erna Ómarsdóttir, and Pierre Alain Giraud and was projected on the side of oil tankers as part of the city’s Winter Lights Festival. Footage of the performance was also filmed.

The band also recently shared a couple of new tracks – ‘Match’ and ‘End’ – as part of the soundtrack for the ‘Black Mirror’ episode ‘Hang the DJ’, which was helmed by Alex Somers. Towards the end of 2017, Jónsi also announced details of ‘Frakkur 2000-2004’, a collection of previously unreleased solo material.
