“Try blaming it on the hidden people, volcanoes, elves, trolls, the midnight sun, the violent wind or what you will, but at the end of the day no one really knows why the Icelandic imagination is as vivid as it is. “
Kitchen Motors founder Kira Kira
A live and spontaneous experience that will transport you to a beautiful and eerie world. Expect atmospheric musical landscapes, where traditional tunes emerge from an evocative soundscape, enhanced by hypnotic lighting and visuals by artists Magnus Helgason and Kira Kira. Think tank, art collective and record label, Kitchen Motors’ search for new art forms has made them one of the most vital and interesting groups in Iceland.
The night will feature performances from Slowblow, Johann Johannson, Skuli Sverrisson and Kira Kira plundering the sounds of countless unnamed instruments, mixing strings with the sounds of old electric organs, modern digital glitch and cinematic sounds.
