Liminal

Liminal is more than an ambient sigur rós mixtape curated by jónsi, alex somers and paul corley. Liminal sees sigur rós as an eco-system. It identifies the connections and blurs the boundaries between work done and work to come; between new music and ideas barely yet born; between songs written 20 years ago and collaborations to be made tomorrow. In bringing together these collaborations and commissions – for choreographers, visual artists and new technologies – with solo work and remixes, film score and generative music, as well as friends in the wider sigur rós ‘family’, liminal aims to take the listener to a place neither here nor there, a “liminal” space. Liminal will live as an ‘endless’ mixtape, always growing but never done….

LIMINAL SOUNDBATHS

In April 2017, the first Liminal Soundbath took place at NeueHouse in LA, California as a way of experiencing Liminal in a live arena with other human beings. Since then, twelve soundbaths have been held in Iceland, Spain, the UK and US, including one at Arcosanti's FORM festival.

As featured in Vogue, in February this year, Jónsi, Alex Somers and Paul Corley presented a 'Liminal Soundbath' in the North American Mammal Hall of the L.A. Natural History Museum. Attendees lay on mats and were transported by ambient sounds and a playlist adapted for the space, including field wildlife recordings of species exhibited in the hall.
