Sigur RósJónsi, frequent collaborator Alex Somers, and composer Paul Corley have been hosting live “Liminal” soundbaths.

They held one at their Norður og Niður and have another coming up at FORM Arcosanti. This week, Jónsi, Somers, and Corley are broadcasting a 12-hour Liminal playlist on NTS Radio. The broadcast runs from noon to midnight Pacific on May 8.

On May 9, Jónsi, Somers, and Corley will present a live Liminal soundbath at Los Angeles’ Marciano Arts Foundation. They also have three Liminal soundbaths at Meltdown in June. Learn more at the Liminal site.

Jónsi, Somers, and Corley’s Liminal soundbaths include solo work, remixes, film score excerpts, AI, and generative music, according to a press release. “Sigur Rós played live a lot during the last two years,” Jónsi said in a statement. “And inevitably you end up playing the rockier, more focussed songs, which means that loads of other stuff gets ignored. ‘Liminal’ tries to do something different. It’s just me, Paul, and Alex in a dark room manipulating and mucking around with recordings, FX and vocals. We play and sing sparsely and focus on the atmosphere coming together. There’s a sound-reactive light sculpture and everyone can sit or lie down. It’s all very cosy and people seem to like it.”
