valgeir sigurđsson Dissonance (LP, £19.75)label: Bedroom Community
Post-minimalist, post-ambient, post-something else. History freely dilates and collapses on Valgeir Sigurđsson’s ‘Dissonance’, his first solo release since 2012. Its three large-scale works are haunted by the old Western tradition, infused with the ethereal workings of electronics and sound manipulation. Recorded and produced between September 2015 and November 2016 at Greenhouse Studios, ‘Dissonance’ is disarmingly human, reflecting the most extreme four years of Sigurđsson’s life full of ecstatic joy and deep sorrow. ‘Dissonance’ is a personal and collective musical treatise to explore and question a world that is collapsing under its internal dissonances.
