Valgeir Sigurdsson

Icelandic composer, producer, and founder of the Bedroom Community label, Valgeir Sigurðsson may not be a household name, but his body of work is. Valgeir is an inspired, industrious maker of a spectacular northern music, of an uncanny soul music, a fiendish, visceral folk music, all of which exude a challenging post-punk sensibility and a fascination with glitch and improvisation. Conventionally an acoustic classical musician, his work is informed by a deep working knowledge of the astonishing sonic potential of electronics and an unabashed love for the beauty and brains of weird pop.

With Bedroom Community, his work with the likes of Nico Muhly, Ben Frost, Paul Corley, Sam Amidon and Daníel Bjarnason features a constantly evolving appreciation of the diversity of music in the world. Three solo works, Ekvílibríum (2007) Draumalandið (2010) and Architecture of Loss (2013) was followed in 2017 by the intensely reflective Dissonance. His collaborations have included Björk, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Feist, Damon Albarn, CocoRosie, Sigur Rós, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Brian Eno, Tim Hecker, ANOHNI, Oneohtrix Point Never and Alarm Will Sound.
