out now. ‘sigur rós presents liminal sleep’, a brand new Liminal playlist dedicated to nightly oblivion. https://ffm.to/liminal.ofp “we like the fact that sleep remains defiantly mysterious; something we all do - all need to do - but can’t ever get fully inside. this playlist is a modest attempt to mirror the journey of a sleep cycle, with its curves, steady states and natural transitions." — Jónsi, Paul Corley & Alex Somers produced by Kjartan Holm and Paul Corley #sigurrosliminal

Resonance 104.4fm talks to jónsi & carl michael von hausswolff about their recent "dark morph" project. - listen to the interview via jonsi.com "On view until 30 June 2019 at The Ocean Space as part of Venice Biennial, this sound installation is by Dark Morph, the newly formed duo of composer Carl Michael von Hausswolff and musician and vocalist Jónsi of Sigur Rós. The So(ng)qe/Tovuto Kyrrahafið Sound Field synthesizes diffracting patterns of sound waves with ocean waves, the sounds of whales, fish, crustaceans, and the wind recorded during Dark Morph’s expedition with The Ocean Space organisers the TBA21-Academy, to Fiji, South Pacific. We asked the duo, in a time of more urgent deconstructions of nationalism, how Icelandic the final sound was and how it is influenced by the lack of daylight in winter months."

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”.
