Dreamland (large orchestra)

2011

by Valgeir Sigurðsson

"Here, Sigurðsson adopts a restrained approach to the soundtrack to a particularly grave film, and he does so with great lucidity, underlying the content with powerful yet discreet touches. His greatest achievement is to manage to give the music an identity away from the images it was written for."
The Milk Factory

"On Draumalandid, a soundtrack for a new Icelandic environmental documentary, Valgeir Sigurðsson goes the extra mile to produce work that stands up against the best of its genre."
Pitchfork

"Sigurðsson’s touch is at its most precise here, crafting an emotional weight that is moving, but not overstated. With such a keen ear for composition and flow, Sigurðsson has created a score that sounds remarkably evocative of the film’s main themes, while still able to stand alone as an album. At the very least, Draumalandið is another brilliant showcase of Bedroom Community’s burgeoning potential."
Dusted Magazine

"Draumalandið is a forceful and poignant piece of work, and as part of the larger film project its quite outstanding."
The Line of Best Fit

"Starting with a vocal number and ending with harrowing bombast, this soundtrack covers a lot of ground with grace."
