interviewing him tomorrow about his solo album. anything any of you would like me to ask?
Ask him a very boring question instead like does he write songs based on artwork or does he try to find artwork that reflects the music. Boring, I know.
Ask him what his lil' sister Sigurrós thinks about being named after a multi-million (I presume) selling band?
Ask him if he feels at all burnt out producing so much music in a relatively short time ( Jonsi & Alex album, solo album and the yet unreleased new Sigur Rós album).
Ask him what his favourite record of 2009 was.
Ask him if the economic crisis in Iceland is having a large effect on musicians and artists in Iceland.
thank you for the others
The band was named after his sister rather than the other way round?????
that's what I meant.
and their influence on Riceboy Sleeps.
also, whether this is the pencilled in acoustic album or if thats still coming out. lol...coming out.
Then ask him to give me some top tips and secret hidey wonderful places to visit during my future trip to Iceland.
Then if he gets a bit moody with you, maybe you could ask him what exactly he and his PR people were thinking when they decided to charge £50 for the limited edition of Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust they had on sale, given that it looks like a heap of shit in comparison to the Heima limited edition, which is not only beautifully made but actually fits on my dvd shelf and is over £20 less. Cheers!
but i have no idea how to say: Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust
including the soundtrack for ondine that the keyboard player (forgot his name) is doing
about the influences for different projects and how the music-creating-process differs between the projects. I guess you had already thought of this yourself but that's what I'd like to know.
If he's gona write/sing any more songs in english and does it take away the 'magic/individuality/importance' away from Sigur Ros.
off to natter with him now. it's being filmed by http://www.beatcast.tv, so should be rather ace
