Rhys Chatham with Valgeir Sigurdsson

Only few know his name – and yet the international indie-pop audience is all too familiar with Valgeir Sigurdsson: The great, mysterious Icelander has provided production support for artists such as Björk, CocoRosie, Bonnie “Prince” Billy or Feist. But the co-founder of the Bedroom Community label has also left traces as a solo artist, with subtly drawn electro-acoustic landscapes of enchanting beauty. A hypnotic quality can also be found in the work of Paris-based US composer, guitarist and trumpeter Rhys Chatham, who already in the 1970s transferred the expanded vocabulary of minimal music into a rock context and created his first legendary pieces for an electric guitar orchestra. The two monoliths of avant-garde and pop music are set to meet for the very first time at this year’s donaufestival.
