Bedroom Community celebrates 10th anniversary with Whale Watching Tour

Share this post:

In celebration of the Icelandic label and composer collective Bedroom Community’s 10th Anniversary in 2016, its three founders: Valgeir Sigurðsson, Ben Frost, and Nico Muhly, join fellow artists Sam Amidon, Nadia Sirota, Borgar Magnason, Una Sveinbjarnardóttir, and Helgi Jonsson on a Whale Watching Tour of the United States in March and April. This marks the third Whale Watching Tour, and the first since a European adventure in 2010. Bedroom Community was founded in 2006 by composer and producer/engineer Valgeir Sigurðsson as a place for like-minded artists to create and release otherwise unreleasable music. The Whale Watching Tour is an unusual and ambitious premise. The artists, who are friends and colleagues, present what is more like a musical conversation with aspects of a show-and-tell than a formal concert.

“The Whale Watching Tour is an opportunity to manifest what we, as a record label and a collective of disparate musical personalities, do behind the closed doors of the studio. To create something uniquely belonging to the live experience from source material that is very familiar to us. These shows are fuelled by joyful energy and appreciation for each other but also tension, blood and sweat that makes it all the more rewarding at the end of the day.”  – VALGEIR SIGURÐSSON

“The influential Bedroom Community label: a lightning rod at the juncture where the ambition of classical music meets the aesthetics of indie music.”PITCHFORK
