Hugar at The Vasulka Effect
Through a series of impromptu sessions, Bergur Þórisson and Pétur Jónsson, the multi-instrumentalists responsible for the rich and dreamy sounds of Hugar, recorded and released their independent self-titled debut in 2014. The sweepingly multi-layered and ethereally ambient album quickly amassed an organic following of listeners and has since racked up over 30 million streams worldwide on Spotify alone. In addition to their new album Hugar have composed a score for the Islandic film The Vasulka Effect, premiering at Nordisk Panorama Film Festival 21 Sept.
The duo will attend the premiere and make a unique performance in the Festival Centre at Panora, 21 Sept 17:30. The performance will be accompanied by a video collage of Steina and Woody Vasulkas video art.
