Music VI

I very much enjoy the ethereal, minimalist, almost classical, music produced by the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Ros. The falsetto vocals of Jónsi Birgisson. The bowed guitar (e.g. at 1:46 in video). The waves of sound. This video is a trailer for Heima, a documentary film about Sigur Ros's tour of Iceland in 2006.

[NOTE: I can't help noticing that I have been listening to and posting a lot about Icelandic muscians. Given a total population of only about 320,000 people, Iceland certainly has an impressive density of creative musicians].
