‹ Back to What's On múm: People on Sunday

3 Mar 2017

Playful electronica, ambient sounds, experimental indie pop: the prolific and globally fêted Icelandic band múm has never fit into conventional categories.

Fresh from a collaboration with the Kronos Quartet, the founding members of múm, Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar þóreyjarson Smárason, perform an improvised live score to People on Sunday, a masterpiece of silent film.

A vivid portrait of Berlin and its young inhabitants at the end of the 1920s, the film is rarely screened nowadays yet it served as a springboard into Hollywood for its makers Billy Wilder, Edgar Ulmer, Fred Zinnemann and the Siodmak brothers.

Don’t miss the UK premiere of this unique project.

Like a more intimate answer to their country's definitive post-rock band [Sigur Ros], with a bigger soft spot for Aphex Twin.
