Boomkat product review for:

valgeir sigurðsson - Architecture Of Loss

'Architecture Of Loss' is the stunning 3rd solo LP release by Icelandic producer, composer, mixer and engineer extraordinaire, Valgeir Sigurdsson. It is the score to a dance piece by celebrated choreographer Stephen Petronio "...about formation and disintegration, the physical manifestations of "losing" and all that implies" and features contributions from Nico Muhly, with live performances by Sigurdsson with longtime collaborators Shahzad Ismaily and Nadia Sirota. As we've come to expect from anything our protagonist is involved with, the execution of production is second to none and bears all the hallmarks of his visceral, expansive sound design across its 10 diverse and striking parts. Its metastable structure feel in constant flux, transferring energies from hypnotic low end drones to airborne strings, between fizzing electronic particle and acoustic textures, from wide-angled atmospheres and cavernous resonances to clinically crisp, pointillist percussions that we can only imagine will beautifully compliment the movements of highly trained dancers. Recommended to fans of Nico Muhly, The Haxan Cloak, Roly Porter, Paul Jebanasam, Eyvind Kang.
