Airwaves – A world of beautiful music in intimate settings
The Airwaves festival brings some of the world's most creative music
talent to Reykjavik where they perform in mostly very intimate settings
where one can almost touch the music.
The Embassy honored a group of
young American and Icelandic
composers and performers including the incomparable Nico Muhly, Paul
Corley, Sam Amidon, Nadia Sirota, Puzzle Muteson, Daniel Bjarnasson, and
Ben Frost These artists came to Iceland through the Bedroom Community
record label/collective which was established
by Valgeir Sigurðsson, a very accomplished composer himself and
purveyor of beautiful music. Mary and I attended most of their
performances, cementing our admiration of their music.
