Press Reviews for Architecture Of Loss

Every time I see High Water Sounds' Jeffrey Catalano, he introduces me to another outstanding piece of music that I need to own immediately. At the 2012 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, that was The Architecture of Loss, the third album by Valgeir Sigurdsson, the Icelandic composer and founder of the excellent Bedroom Community label. Originally composed for Stephen Petronio's dance company, this sweetly sorrowful, trembling music has been performed live by Sigurdsson, acclaimed violist Nadia Sirota, gifted keyboardist Nico Muhly, and multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Shahzad Ismaily. I missed the recent performance here in NYC, but I've fallen in love with the LP. Its sumptuous sound, spacious, detailed, and pure, impressed everyone in Catalano's room—and should do the same for you in yours.
