Jónsi is a pseudonym of, at least, two Icelandic artists:
1) Jón Þór Birgisson is the lead singer and guitarist for Sigur Rós and half of Jónsi & Alex, known for his soft falsetto voice . He released his solo debut album, Go, on April 6, 2010.
Birgisson grew up in Iceland, raised by parents who weren't particularly musical; his early memories include playing The Beatles at double speed on his turntable and listening to and playing along with Iron Maiden records. Read more on Last.fm

TB2 by Frakkur (aka Jónsi) // https://sigur-ros.co.uk/get/frakkur/
Frakkur was the artist name Jónsi from Sigur Rós used to define his home experiments in electronic music in the early years of the 21st century.
TB2, taken from the forthcoming triple vinyl album 2000-2004, was made in Jónsi's small flat in the middle of Reykjavík, where he set up his first home studio in a cupboard, so that it could be packed away at night. He had a Yamaha RS-7000 with 32mb memory in the top drawer, which he called the Grey Machine and used to sample the beat-up toys he’d collect from local goodwill stores. Jónsi recalls it as a time "filled with blinding sunlight and pure fun creative energy”.

Sigur Rós have added an hour of brand new unreleased music to Liminal, their “endless ambient streaming mixtape.” Now in its third hour, the ever-expanding playlist has thus far comprised blissed-out versions of existing songs; contributions and remixes from friends and family; and a smattering of unreleased tracks and rarities. For the latest installment, however, the band are unveiling music and sounds to be found in Tónandi, their spatial computing experience designed in collaboration with Magic Leap. This latest hour of Liminal is the first to feature only Sigur Rós material, with much of it being drawn from songs still in development.
