The Warhol is pleased to present the Pittsburgh premiere of the ambient and minimalistic electro-acoustic music of Icelandic composer and musician Valgeir Sigurðsson. His third full-length album, Architecture of Loss (which also served as the score for a Stephen Petronio ballet), features like-minded, young composer, Nico Muhly on piano, whose career was launched on Sigurðsson’s indie -classical label, Bedroom Community. Recently named one of NPR's "Top 100 Composers Under 40" he is arguably best known for his collaborations; producing and engineering work by fellow Icelander Björk and Bonnie “Prince Billy.
