Music from the Moon
Well, I am a huge fan of music from Iceland. Espacially Sigur Rós, Múm and Seabear are brilliant bands with a very unique sound. I was at a concert of Seabear and Múm two years ago, and I was fascinated how playfull they acted on the stage. Exchanging the instruments, exchanging the band members, and it looked a bit like they were still experiencing things on stage. And Music from the Moon is a documentary about the music scene of Iceland and Greenland. Two cultures apart from the rest of the world. Well, I can’t say much about the rest of the musicians besides Emilíana Torrini but I think that’s the interesting part about the movie. There is a lot we can learn about these two cultures and their music scene.
“Music from the Moon is an intercultural music and puppet show for children. In 2006, the Hypno Theatre travelled to Iceland and remote locations in Greenland to perform their show. The film accompanies the group on their journey through Arctic landscapes. Look forward to exceptional concerts and personal moments with Emilíana Torrini, Benni Hemm Hemm, Dagur Kári and other stars of the Icelandic and Greenlandic music scenes and learn about the Nordic attitude towards music and creativity.
