February: Week One

February 3, 2010

Artist of the week:
Elín Hansdóttir // Elín is possibly best known for her work as an actress in such films as the highly acclaimed Nói Albínói. But this Berlin-residing Icelander has culled and amassed a staggeringly impressive bevy of audio and visual art installations around the world.

View more of her work and cv here.

Musician of the week:
Akira Rabelais // “Spellewauerynsherde” from Wire Magazine: “When Texas born Akira Rabelais found a handful of discarded Ampex tapes containing Icelandic a cappella laments – recorded some time between 1960 and 1980 – he decided to bring them back to life using his ‘magic realist’ code language. Rabelais writes software but likens the process to writing poetry…”

Listen to a sample here and read more about Akira here.
