22° LUNAR HALO

soundtrack to brand new dance work by leading taiwanese choreographer CHENG tsung-lung, premiering in taiwan to coincide. tsung-lung chose his favourite music from throughout SIGUR RÓS’s career, which was then twisted, bent and broken, and finally added to in the band’s reykjavík studio to create a new perspective for CLOUD GATE 2. musical director KJARTAN HOLM.

VARIATIONS ON DARKNESS

soundtrack to a series of choreographed performances from the ICELAND DANCE COMPANY, originally commissioned for the band’s NORÐUR OG NIÐUR festival New Year 2018. IDC musical “vacillation and transfiguration” expert VALDIMAR JÓHANSSON was granted unique access to unreleased SIGUR RÓS material, as well as multitracks of the band’s catalogue, using them to create a score of high nordic drama to underpin the apocalyptic vision of choreographer ERNA ÓMARSDÓTTIR. edited for vinyl by KJARTAN HOLM.
