Riceboy Sleeps with London Contemporary Orchestra
7:00pm, Thursday 11 July 2019
The Usher Hall are proud to be included in the tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of “Riceboy Sleeps” which will be performed live by Jónsi & Alex Somers with The London Contemporary Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ames, with orchestral arrangements by David Handler.
A collaboration between the Sigur Rós singer and American visual artist and composer Somers, the album will be performed in its atmospheric ambient entirety for the first time anywhere. Recorded at home in Iceland while Jónsi was on hiatus from Sigur Rós and finished off-grid in Hawaii.
BBC “Riceboy Sleeps operates at a heady level of beauty"
Evening Standard “…it’s up there with the best of Sigur Rós”
The Observer "beautifully fragile music, not disposable but built to last”.
