In this movie, Valgeir Sigurðsson invites us to a Bedroom Community concert from his home in Reykjavik, where he is joined by the Siggi String Quartet and singer Helgi Jónsson.
Valgeir is a rewnowned Icelandic composer and producer. His contemporary classical writing and esoteric electronic production blends to a point where one is indistingquishable from the other.
Valgeir has worked closely with fellow Icelander Björk, a collaboration which began with her Oscar-nominated score for Lars Von Trier’s Dancer In The Dark. He founded the Bedroom Community label in 2006 with Nico Muhly and Ben Frost, where he cemented his sonic signature with his own solo work on the label, in addition to albums with Muhly, Frost, Sam Amidon and Daníel Bjarnason, and an extensive collaboration with viola da gamba player, Liam Byrne.
In this unique recording for Festspillene i Nord-Norge's NO NO fest, Valgeir is joined by his friends and colleagues to a Bedroom Community event. This concert marks the beginning of Valgeir's role as associate artist of Festspillene i Nord-Norge.
