New Sounds

Iceland via Lincoln Center

Sunday, May 05, 2013

When Icelandic art-rock band Sigur Rós (sometimes falling into classical or minimalist camps, sometimes labeled post-rock, but always ethereal) was on a short hiatus, their members were busy, either spending time with their babies or presenting world premieres.  On November 15, 2010, John Schaefer was on location at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle near Lincoln Center for the White Light Festival where Kjartan Sveinsson (Sigur Rós multi-instrumentalist) and Jónsi Birgisson (voice of Sigur Rós) presented new works.  For this New Sounds, we’ll sample some of these live performances.
