Variations On Darkness - Soundtrack to a series of choreographed performances from the Iceland Dance Company, originally commissioned for Sigur Rós’s Nordur og nidur festival at Christmas 2017. Choreographer Valdimar Johansson was granted access to unreleased Sigur Rós material, as well as multitracks of chosen songs from the band’s catalogue, and personally created a score of high Nordic drama. “The best thing we’ve done in ages,” said Jonsi on hearing Variations On Darkness for the first time.
