Published Dec 10, 2012Melancholy Icelandic troupe Sigur Rós' just wrapped up their Valtari Mystery Film Experiment, which added intriguing visuals to each of the tracks from their latest album, Valtari. Now, those films are being compiled by XL Recordings for release digitally on February 5 and on DVD on March 5.
The project saw Sigur Rós enlist 12 filmmakers to create films for their musical compositions, including Canucks Floria Sigismondi and John Cameron Mitchell. The films were then screened in cities across the world, including Vancouver, Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. The last Canadian screening is tonight (December 10) in Palmerston, ON.
