Riceboy Sleeps w/Wordless Orchestra: Jónsi (Sigur Rós) & Alex Somers

Paramount Theater, 901 Pine St, Seattle, WA 98101

This autumn Jónsi & Alex Somers will for the first time perform their celebrated 2009 milestone ambient album, Riceboy Sleeps, in its entirety with an orchestra in theatres across North America. An ecstatic musical union of the Sigur Rós lead singer and film composer partner Alex Somers (whose recent score work includes Captain Fantastic, the forthcoming Honey Boy, and the award-winning score for Hale County This Morning, This Evening), Riceboy Sleeps has been described as “operating at heady level of beauty” by the BBC, and “up there with the best of Sigur Rós” by the London Evening Standard. Conducted by Robert Ames / Orchestral Arrangements by David Handler
