So, three years ago, in Bambi - Prince - Prince Dauðalagið - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) ofwe made a reconnaissance trip to this strange canyon just shy of the Arctic Circle, to check Midsummer Day light levels and think about how we might stage such an event.
So instead we settled on the Dauðalagið - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) end of the touring period, a whole year later, in the summer of Slowly the idea mushroomed. Seasoned Icelandic all-rounder, Kari Sturluson came in on the creative and logistical side, and gradually more locations were added - inevitably including a Dauðalagið - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) show in Reykjavik - til we had a full tour of the island in our sights.
Since certain shows had to be free for practical reasons, it was decided to make every stop on the tour free, and for Sigur Ros to roll into town with something like their full production, regardless of local facilities or lack thereof and the sheer Rap Das Armas (Massivedrum Electro Mix) - Various - Booom 7 and folly of the exercise. Only two of the shows, Reykjavik and Invenzione I Do Maggiore (Bwv 772) - J.S.
Bach*, Andreas Angelo - Johann Sebastian Bach were publically announced, with the other smaller community hall show and Asbyrgi relying purely on word-of-mouth. In the event, the open-door policy worked amazingly well, with people of all ages, who would never have normally bought a ticket for a Sigur Ros show, just coming along to check it out. As the tour went round it gained a semi-mythical status, with the biggest national daily, Morgunbladid, saying in an editorial that this was some kind of gift that was joining the nation together at an important time.
We stopped at many amazing places on the two-week jaunt around the country, some with audiences and some without. Although the band wanted a visual record of the live show with which they had just toured the world, we also wanted to deliver a different kind of experience of watching Sigur Ros than you get in a gig venue.
Many people watch Sigur Ros with their eyes closed sic and enjoy the show as an overall experience. What we wanted was to move the camera in much closer and reveal what was actually going on on stage.
All these things were great. Denni Karlsson, the director of the summer filming, started the editing process in the early autumn, but the initial results fell somewhat short of the grand expectations we had had in trying to follow the footsteps of some of the most enduring music films ever made.
We played around with the footage for months, trying to get a proper film out of it, before admitting that what we had was a bunch of pretty performances without much of a narrative thread to hold it together.
Dauðalagið - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD), in the spring ofDean wound up in Iceland to shoot another substantial tranche of live footage with the intimacy brief to the fore, as well as environmental colour, sub-textural links and, crucially, the face-to-face interviews with the band, which — despite the fact that the band were uncomfortable with talking to camera - he felt would provide the glue to hold the whole thing together.
Thankfully, Nick decided not to watch our blind alley edits and, looking at the work with fresh eyes, Dauðalagið - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) found layers and connections that brought a new weight and power to the film.
Between them, Nick and Dean provided the final missing pieces of this jigsaw project, producing a honed and impressive end result from what were pretty disparate elements. November 5, John Best, Manager Sigur Ros. Heima : Production Notes.
