Sigur Rós Valtari Mystery Film Experiment!

Sigur Rós are currently running a cool music video art experiment where they have given 12 film makers the same budget and asked them to create a video based around the ideas they get when listening to the new Sigur Rós album Valtari. It's a rather nice album, more in tune with their ( ) album and Jonsi's Rice Boy Sleeps side project. The band had this to say

"we never meant our music to come with a pre-programmed emotional response. we don’t want to tell anyone how to feel and what to take from it. with the films, we have literally no idea what the directors are going to come back with. none of them know what the others are doing, so hopefully it could be interesting."

You can see the first 5 videos below and check them as they go live via the bands Film Experiment site!
