Bio

This autumn Jónsi & Alex Somers will for the first time perform their celebrated 2009 milestone ambient album, Riceboy Sleep

This autumn Jónsi & Alex Somers will for the first time perform their celebrated 2009 milestone ambient album, Riceboy Sleeps, in its entirety with an orchestra in theatres across North America. An ecstatic musical union of the Sigur Rós lead singer and film composer partner Alex Somers (whose recent score work includes Captain Fantastic, the forthcoming Honey Boy, and the award-winning score for Hale County This Morning, This Evening), Riceboy Sleeps has been described as “operating at heady level of beauty” by the BBC, and “up there with the best of Sigur Rós” by the London Evening Standard.

 

“We’re so happy to announce the North American tour for our album ‘Riceboy Sleeps’. Our album is turning 10 this year and we wanted to share in something special together…

After all these years and having never fully realized our album in a live environment we are so excited to come play a few special shows… We’ll be playing together with the Wordless Music Orchestra and Choir. And we’ll be playing in some really beautiful rooms and we can’t wait to share in this experience together… Thank you so much for all the love and support… And thank you for listening…”Jónsi & Alex

 

Released ten years ago this summer, and initially considered a low-key side project, the album has gone on to be a sleeper hit with compositions such as “Boy 1904” and “Happiness” gaining multi-million streams on some of the world’s most popular playlists. However, other than one show at New York City’s St Paul the Apostle church in 2010, the work has never been performed live…and even then not in its entirety. So, it is with great pleasure that Jónsi & Alex announce that they will be joined by the Wordless Music Orchestra and Choir for 10 shows in North America to mark its 10th anniversary, starting in Seattle on Oct 11.

 

‘Riceboy Sleeps’ was Jónsi & Alex Somers first public musical venture together, although the pair had already released a limited-edition book and staged exhibitions of their drawings and artwork together, also under the name Riceboy Sleeps.  At one stage the album itself was almost lost to time, when the hard drive containing the bulk of recordings crashed, leaving them with only the stereo mixes to work from. They left their Icelandic home and decamped to Hawaii for a month, working off-grid to hone what would become this 65-minute audio treasure.
