i am beginning to get a bit hyper about “heima” which gets it world premiere in reykjavík in 11 days (september 27th at the reykjavík international film festival) and it gets shown two days after that here in helsinki at the rakkautta ja anarkiaa film festival (its sold out). after that it will be shown in new york, london and at a few other european (and beyond) film festivals in october and november. the film is released on double dvd on november the 5th.

in 2000 i inter-railed. i met an austrian girl in stockholms main train station as i was finishing up my few weeks. i told her about sigur rós and we swapped email addresses. a while later when sigur rós played in vienna the concert was recorded by austrian radio and broadcast. she taped it off the radio and sent the tape to me. as an introduction to the concert there was a simple piece of music played over the pa system. it was “für alina” by the estonian composer arvo pärt.

at one stage in this piece there was a noise by an audience member – i listened to it many many times trying to see if it was what i thought it was – a baby crying. so here i am now almost seven years later listening to the same song (this time a proper version) and i miss that little baby, keep expecting it to interrupt the delicate silence between the notes of the piano.

in 2005 it was the 200th anniversary of h.c. andersens birthday – and as part of it sigur rós provided the music to a ballet interpretation of the little match girl story by andersen

taken from the 2001 sigur rós tour ep (with steindór andersen as guest vocalist) this song is one of my all time favourites.
