‹ Back to What's On Valgeir Sigurðsson

9 Nov 2017

Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Ticket holders will be contacted. 

Infused with the ethereal workings of electronics and sound manipulation, Valgeir Sigurðsson’s Dissonance is an experimental exploration of orchestral sounds.

Full of ecstatic joy and deep sorrow, it is haunted by the Western classical tradition, distorting and subverting the sounds of conventional instruments to mesmerising effect.

His first solo release since 2012, Dissonance is performed live with Liam Byrne on strings and visuals created by the Antivj collective.

A masterful piece of work.
