I’ve been enjoying the latest album from Sigur Ros, called valtari, since it was released. Yesterday we got tickets to see them live next year, which reminded me of the mystery film experiment they’ve been running. They gave a dozen film makers the same small budget, asking them to create whatever comes into their head when they listen to the songs from the valtari album, the idea being to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow people complete creative freedom. As you’d expect the results are a complete mix. Two stand out for me.
All about meditation and the great tool that Sigur Ros’ music can be to connecting with our deeper selves.
As the director says it is “a spiritual and meditative journey into nature”. Sums it up really…
