Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra Music Room in the Hamm Building
408 Saint Peter Street
Valgeir Siguršsson's boundless approach to music informs his work as composer, musician, engineer and mixer. In high demand as a producer, Siguršsson has spent over a decade cultivating projects by vaulted international artists like Björk and Bonnie Prince Billy while developing his own particular magic brand of recording artistry now with three solo albums to his name. His most recent The Architecture of Loss was commissioned by the Stephen Petronio Dance Company for a March 2012 NYC premiere. Siguršsson is the founder of the influential Bedroom Community record label as well as Icelands top recording facility Greenhouse Studios where his collaborators include Nico Muhly, Sigur Rós, Feist, Hilary Hahn & Hauschka, Sam Amidon, Kronos Quartet, mśm, Ben Frost and many others.
In all of his projects, Siguršsson bends and blends familiar sounds to expose the new within the known, lending depth to pop and mainstream music through care and an ear for esoteric, eclectic sonic experimentation. His aural oeuvre and collaborative contributions collide organic with synthetic, acoustic with digital, connection with isolation, and domestic with ethereal resulting in a body of work ripe with emotion, curiosity, and humanity. Siguršssons Liquid Music appearance will mark his Twin Cities debut.
Come early! The Meritage Bar will be open in the Music Room one hour prior to, and throughout, this performance. Thank you to Meritage and Stella Artois, official sponsors of Liquid Music.
