Valgeir Sigurðsson

Producer and composer Valgeir Sigurðsson has been making musical noise for as long as he can remember, and professionally for over two decades with artists such as Björk, Tim Hecker, Bonnie “Prince” Billie and Oneohtrix Point Never. His formative years in a small Icelandic village proved fertile soil for his forays into self-taught recording technology, constantly refining his own recording artistry and composition, with three solo albums to his name, Ekvílibríum (2007), Draumalandið (2010) and Architecture of Loss (2013) and the last one DISSONANCE (2017) . Valgeir is the founder of the Bedroom Community record label and Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavík, where he has established an influential sonic signature with recording techniques that push the boundaries of contemporary and neo-classical music production. Frequently pairing acoustic instruments with electronics, his scores have been performed by the likes of The Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Alarm Will Sound, Crash Ensemble, Chiara Quartet, City of London Sinfonia and Nordic Affect. In all of his projects, Valgeir 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, and curiosity.
