Having orchestrated a portion of the Riceboy Sleeps album, by Jónsi & Alex, for a live performance at The Church of St. Paul The Apostle in 2010, I'm pleased to announce that I will be orchestrating the Riceboy Sleeps album in its entirety for a world premiere tour this summer.
In 2009, Riceboy Sleeps received groundbreaking success and praise from sources such as BBC, Metro, NME and The Independent, praised for its lush orchestration and indulgent atmospheric ambience. The following year I was commissioned to transcribe and orchestrate selections from the album for Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival, for Jónsi & Alex to perform with orchestra and choir. Committing this music to the page was a tall order as the essence of the album is comprised of sound samples and manipulated field recordings.
This summer I’m honored to collaborate with my good friends Jónsi & Alex on the World Premiere performance of the entire Riceboy Sleeps album - contributing new orchestral & choral arrangements.I look forward to joining them at the Philharmonie de Paris and Barbican Hall shows to celebrate the tenth anniversary of this release.
