Winter Sleep - with Dawn McCarthy 7. Equilibrium Is Restored 8. Before Nine 9. Kin - with Bonnie 'Prince' Billy 10. Lungs, for Merrilee. Mancvso Just the exact mix of emotions, as a first date with Valgeir. Favorite track: Kin - with Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. Jez Collins. Valgeir Sigurðsson born 1971 is an Icelandic record producer, mixer, composer, audio engineer and musician. Coming from a musical background Valgeir's fascination with recording technology led to a job in a small recording studio at the age of 16. He plays keyboards, bass, percussion, electronicsprogramming and studied classical guitar, graduating with a Tonmeister degree from London's SAE Institute. In 1998 Valgeir was hired by fellow countrywoman Björk as engineer and programmer on the soundtrack. Icelandic producer Valgeir Sigurðsson is best known for his work for other artists Björk and Bonnie Prince Billy, mostly, so it actually comes as no surprise that his solo as a surprise. It is a producer's record, in that Sigurðsson called in favors across the board although, no, Björk is not part of the adventure, lining up a revolving cast of musicians and three singers: Billy, Faun Fables' Dawn McCarthy, and Machine Translations' J.

Valgeir Sigurðsson is an Icelandic composer and producer. His music blends contemporary classical writing and esoteric electronic production, sometimes to a point where one is indistinguishable from the other. Valgeir worked closely with fellow Icelander Björk, a collaboration which began with her Oscar-nominated score for Lars Von Triers Dancer In The Dark. I have been wondering what to call the music on Dissonance, Valgeir Sigurðssons intoxicating, reflective fourth album, released ten years after he formed the adventurous music collective Bedroom Community. Winter Sleep by Valgeir Sigurðsson featuring Dawn McCarthy. From the album Ekvílibríum. Video by Pierre-Alain Giraud


Reviews of the Valgeir Sigurðsson - Ekvílibríum (1):
Thofyn
The founder of the Icelanding collective, Bedroom Community, finally releases his solo debut on his own label. Although this is a first full length album for Valgeir Sigurðsson, he is no stranger to the studio. His musical career spans over a decade, and includes a lot of production work for Björk (Selmasongs, Vespertne, Medúlla and Drawing Restraint 9). He has also worked with múm on Finally We Are No One and CocoRosie on The Adventures Of Ghosthorse And Stillborn. On Bedroom Community releases, Valgeir contributed towards Ben Frost's Theory of Machines and Nico Muhly's Speaks Volumes. Nico in turn reciprocated, and played piano for six (out of ten) tracks on Ekvílíbrium. Which finally brings us to the album. Ekvílíbrium captures some of the most essential elements of today's electronica [if such genre dares to exist]. From tightly produced, programmed, cut up, and re-arranged sounds to organic drums, guitars, full blown strings and brass section, Valgeir toys with sounds and melodies that speak out in their own unique music tongue. The vocals from Will Oldham (aka Bonnie "Prince" Billy) and Faun Fables' Dawn McCarthy, are neatly folded and cradled by the top-notch mastered instrumentation. Some pieces contain that toytronic sound with music-box-like-quality, that is so reminiscent by the aforementioned múm. What I'm trying to say is this: if "Icelandic" was a sub-genre of electronic music all on its own, then Sigurðsson should be mentioned in the headline for its definition. For now, I can only attempt to throw around labels like leftfield, downtempo, and modern classical, to capture this unique sound. Whip out your best headphones [and not necessarily the most expensive] - Ekvílíbrium is a sure treat for audiophiles. Recommended for the above mentioned names, plus Sylvain Chauveau, Deaf Center, Helios, Marsen Jules and Jóhann Jóhannsson. Favorite track: Winter Sleep.
