To give you a taste of what's Bedroom Community will be up to at Iceland Airwaves 2008 we invite you to a very special and intimate one-night-only performance from composer Ben Frost.
Frost has spent the last year or so creating the follow up to his acclaimed 2007 LP Theory of Machines, an album lauded by the local and international community, referred to, among other things as "...the future of electronic music" and Ben himself as "...one of the most interesting and groundbreaking musicians in the world today".
Frost will be accompanied by Iceland Symphony bassist Borgar Magnasson and two brass players - exclusively sneak previewing a piece from his forthcoming and still as yet untitled second Lp for Bedroom Community. In addition, expect impeccable taste in new music throughout the night from Bedroom Community DJ Mio.
This event is #4 in the series of nights at Kaffibarinn hosted by Bedroom Community, first Wednesday every month.
Wednesday 8th October 21:00 - 01:00

The Icelandic Symphony Orchestra is performing a piece by Nico Muhly this week. The piece is called Wish You Were Here and was written for and premiered by Boston Pops in 2007. Click on the title to read more about the piece in English, tickets are available here: www.midi.is andwww.sinfonia.is, and the concerts are this coming Thursday and Friday (October 2nd and 3rd).
The Friday show is short, sweet and cheap, only 1000 ISK! While the program on Thursday is bigger and a little more expensive. Those who are mostly interested in hearing Muhly’s piece should go on Friday (and attend the aftershow pool-party with the Orchestra) but if you fancy some Debussy as well then go on Thursday.

"...at once powerful, disturbing and enjoyable - we need more of this, more goosebumps from music."
- Deli Magazine
Be sure to check out this great interview with Sam, taken in the intermission on between his set and Valgeir’s on their recent tour.
