Sigur Rós have released another video from their ongoing “Valtari Mystery Film Experiment”, and it’s for the track “DauÃ°alogn” Filmed in the primeval forest of Yakushima, a remote island in southern Japan, director Henry Jun Wah Lee sought to create a “spiritual and meditative journey into nature.”
“Since the time of our earliest ancestors, nature has been a source for inspiration, imagination, and wisdom. Nature is where we come from. Even in this modern age, its energy still flows through our veins. Being in nature, we see the world our ancestors saw: a place of beauty, a place to reflect, a place to learn, and a place to connect with the heart and soul.”
As previously reported, the band has commissioned a dozen filmmakers to create music videos for the ”Valtari Mystery Film Experiment”. Each filmmaker was given the “same modest budget and asked to create whatever comes into their head when they listen to songs from Valtari. The idea is to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow people utmost creative freedom.” Other videos include “Ã‰g anda” 1, “Ã‰g anda” 2, VarÃºÃ° 1, VarÃºÃ° 2, “FjÃ¶gur pÃanó”, “RembihnÃºtur”, and “VarÃ°eldur”.
