Where form meets function

Icelandic band Sigur Rós have given a dozen film makers the same modest budget and asked them to create whatever comes into their head when they listen to songs from the band’s new album Valtari. The idea is to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow people utmost creative freedom. Among the filmmakers are Ramin Bahrani, Alma Har’el and John Cameron Mitchell.

Here we present to you now what American photographer Ryan McGinley has produced for the Sigur Rós ‘Valtari’ Mystery Film Experiment. The outcoming 8 minute short film is beautifully edited and just has in general a very special vibe, that could not fit the band and their ethereal sound much better.

Enjoy the video here above. You can follow the full experiment here.
