Skúli Sverrisson (lowercase night #59)

Skúli Sverrisson
-
Layers of pulsating strings. Streams of cinematic texture. Expanses of heartfelt melody. These are all aspects of the musical world of Skúli Sverrisson, a twenty-first century composer and multi-instrumentalist from Iceland who has united broad swaths of contemporary music into a unique personal language. Sverrisson´s music is as warm-hearted as it is advanced. Though it bears the mark of a master musician’s life experience in a wide range of jazz, rock and new music, it maintains a folk-like directness of expression and a pop-like seductiveness.

His Sería music is a set of hypnotic, labyrinthine songs - dense webs of fingerpicked guitars and basses, mostly played by Skúli and Amadeo Pace (Blonde Redhead), with broad waves of strings by Eyvind Kang (Bill Frisell, Sunn OO) and Hildur Gudnadottir (Pan Sonic, Nico Muhly) and bass clarinets, pedal steel and keyboards by Anthony Burr (LaMonte Young, Klangforum Wien) as well as exquisite vocals by Ólöf Arnalds.

Skúli Sverrisson´s collaborators in the past include improvisers Wadada Leo Smith, Arve Henriksen and Sidsel Endrisen, music icons Jon Hassel, David Sylvian, Arto Lindsey and composers Ryuichi Sakamoto, Johann Johannsson and Eyvind Kang. Sverrisson is also known for his work as an artistic director for Olof Arnalds, recordings with Blonde Redhead and as a musical director for legendary performance artist Laurie Anderson.

His recent work includes Kaldur Solargeisli for voice and orchestra, performed by Olof Arnalds and the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra,
conducted by IIan Volkov. Skúli composed the solo piano piece Miranda for Víkingur Heiðar Ólafsson which was premiered this summer.

Skúli´s music was recently featured Alejandro Iñárritu´s The Revenant and he also collaborated with Jóhann Jóhannsson on his score for the film Sicario.

Skúli has received seven Icelandic Music Awards and has been nominated twice for the Nordic Council Music Price.

On Sunday (20.08), Skúli will live score a movie of his choice.

Leiðangurinn á Töfrafjallið

Nýlistasafnið býður ykkur hjartanlega velkomin á sýningu Leiðangursins á Töfrafjallið, mánudaginn 21. ágúst, á nýju tungli.

Leiðangurinn á Töfrafjallið (2013-2020)* er tilvistarleg tilraun í tíma og rúmi sem kannar vitundarsvið, þekkingu og skynjun, fyrr og nú.

(english below)
„Við viljum líta út fyrir mörk okkar sjálfhverfu tilvistarskilyrða, og samtímis verðum við að viðurkenna öfl sköpunar og eyðileggingar í fortíð og samtíð. Við könnum þetta með listum, bókmenntum, samræðum, athöfnum, en aldrei á hinu vanabundna sviði hverju sinni, við yfirgefum það og erum þar samt, leitum þess sem við getum fundið innan þess og utan. Við skynjum það eins og getnað og fæðingu fjölþátta huga, verk einstaklinga verða sameiginleg, tímabundin rými reynslu. Við gröfum upp eyðiland neytendanna, sem neytt er með endalausri þörf fyrir meira þar sem ekkert meira er að hafa“.

Í tengslum við sýninguna í Nýlistasafninu mun leiðangurinn standa fyrir eftirfarandi atburðum:

Fimmtudaginn 7. september kl. 20:00 – Listamaðurinn sem miðill.

Fimmtudaginn 14. september kl. 20:00 – Kortagerð og þýðingar.

Fimmtudaginn 21. september kl. 20:00 – Tónlist af Töfrafjalli.

*Leiðangursfélagar eru Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir, Birna Bjarnadóttir, Gauti Kristmannsson, Haraldur Jónsson, Karlotta Blöndal, Steingrímur Eyfjörð & Unnar Örn J. Auðarson.

Leiðangurinn snýst um skynjun á evrópskri samtímamenningu í samhengi við skáldsöguna Töfrafjallið eftir Thomas Mann og um leið mótast hún einnig af túlkun á stöðu Íslands í evrópskri menningu og sögu. Skáldsagan er gagntekin af endalausri könnun á hvar tilvistina sé að finna, en að auki bergmálar töfrandi sýn hennar á uppdráttarsýki evrópskrar menningar fyrir styrjaldirnar miklu í öræfi eyðilands kapítalismans í samtímanum.

Í október 2013 fór leiðangurinn í könnunarleiðangur frá jaðri Evrópu til sögusviðs skáldsögunnar. Hópurinn dvaldi á Berghotel Schatzalp í Davos sem er eitt af fyrrum berklahælum staðarins og talið er að Mann hafi nýtt sér það til að lýsa Berghof-hælinu í sögunni. Hótelið var tómt meðan á dvöl hópsins stóð og þar skráðu þau hughrif sín, skynjanir og samtöl í riti og myndum, kvikum sem kyrrum.

Leiðangurinn stendur yfir til vorsins 2020, með fleiri sýningum og gjörningum sem haldin verða í galleríum og öðrum opinberum stöðum á Íslandi og á meginlandi Evrópu. Lokaniðurstöður verða birtar í bók á ensku, sem inniheldur greinar, brot og listaverk. Leiðangurinn stefnir einnig að útgáfu fyrstu íslensku þýðingarinnar á Töfrafjallinu haustið 2020.

The Living Art Museum cordially welcomes you to The Expedition to the Magic Mountain, Monday August 21st, upon the new moon.

The Expedition to the Magic Mountain* (2013-2020) is an existential movement in time and space, exploring levels of consciousness, knowledge and sensibility, old and new. “We want to start exploring beyond the borders of self-assumed existential conditions, yet we need to acknowledge the past and present forces of creativity and destruction. We explore it through art, literature, conversation, action, but never on the ordinary plane of each sphere, we leave it and at the same time remain, seeking what we can find within and without. We feel it is the conception, and birth of multiple minds, individual acts becoming collective, temporary spaces of experience. We excavate the wasteland of consumers, consumed with the endless craving for more, when nothing more is to be had.”

In conjunction with the exhibition, the expedition welcomes visitors to the following events:

Thursday September 7th 8 pm - The Artist as a Medium.

Thursday September 14th, 8pm - Cartography and Translations.

Thursday September 21st, 8pm - Music from the Magic Mountain.

*The members of the expedition are Ása Helga Hjörleifsdóttir, Birna Bjarnadóttir, Gauti Kristmannsson, Haraldur Jónsson, Karlotta Blöndal, Steingrímur Eyfjörð & Unnar Örn J. Auðarson.

The Expedition is centred on the perception of contemporary European culture within the context of Thomas Mann’s Magic Mountain, and shaped also by an extensive collaborative experience on the art of reading Iceland’s whereabouts in European history and culture. In addition to the novel’s ever present dimension of a spell-binding quest in the land of existence, its strangely enchanting view of the shattering decline of modern European culture resonates with the perception of the current desolate remains of capitalism’s wasteland.

In October 2013, a group of seven individuals went on an expedition from the edge of Europe to the staging of the novel. The group stayed at the Berghotel Schatzalp in Davos, which is one of former sanatoria in the region and the one Mann is believed to draw on for the novel’s Berghof Sanatorium. During their stay, the members of the expedition were the only guests at the hotel and this is where they recorded their impressions, perceptions and conversations in writing and on film.

The expedition is scheduled to run until the spring of 2020, with more exhibitions and performances held in both galleries and other public spaces in Iceland and on the European continent. The final results will appear in a book in English, which will include essays, fragments and art work. The aim of the expedition is also to publish the first Icelandic translation of The Magic Mountain.
