The only word that comes to mind is genius and yet that doesn't even begin to describe the concert. They are so creative and so smart and have such a great understanding of our senses. They could have just gone up on stage and played their instruments and sung their songs and it would have been fantastic but instead they blew my mind, our minds, they put on an extraordinary show. A feast for your eyes and ears. The concert started off simply with harsh green lights backing Jonsi which projected these gigantic monster versions of himself playing his guitar with a cello bow which creates this beautiful and distinct sound that mesmerizes you. I was taken back to when I was a kid and you see strange shadows on the walls of tree branches silhouetted in the moonlight but your imagination takes over, makes you think you were seeing something scary when really it was something quit ordinary. You see this shadow and it's this monster and he has two arms but one reaches long and it strokes something but you cant grasp what but then you turn to the stage and Jonsi is beautifully playing his guitar. But this is only the beginning, the way they lit the screens and giant balloons that pulsed with light played so in sync with their sound that it became one cohesive experience that delighted the senses. You could hear light and see sound. Then there were videos that ranged from them playing their instruments both in black and white and a super psychedelic color fest to these hypnotic and haunting videos of children's faces and at one point it felt like I was trapped in a lake full of sea grass with hands groping outward trying desperately to get through the grass or at least to see beyond. All of this of course enhances the music you are hearing. They take you on a journey and it is an emotional journey. They play melodic music that lulls you into a trance and slowly they build you up until you think you are going to burst, but they don't release you they lull you back into that trance and slowly build again in a teasing fashion and when you can't bear it anymore they let loose with a sound that is so raw and powerful that it takes your body and mind and you are the music it fills you entirely and you never want to part it. Towards the end of the show they get the crowd to clap along at a feverish pace which makes you want to dance and sing and in the moment of it all they released confetti onto the crowd and the theater became one giant snow globe. It was truly a spectacular night and I really wish it didn't have to end. My soul was aglow and life was beautiful as if I put on rose colored glasses and now that it is the next day I hunger for that experience again, an itch I so badly want to scratch. I want to hear light and see sound, I want to experience Sigur Ros. It is something everyone should see at least once in their lifetime.
Sigur Ros has to be one of the most fasinating groups going right now. The language barrier is almost non-existant. They played hard and with a love for music that everyone was in to.
The first rain of the season fell during the encore. They were into playing. The place was packed, everyone paid attention. Everyone loved them and each other it seemed
