Sigur Rós have released another video from their ongoing Valtari Mystery Film Experiment, and its for the track VarÃ°eldur. Taking performance art to a creepy new level, director Melika Bass crafts something that looks like an extended director’s cut of that deadly tape in The Ring. If it weren’t for the heavenly strings within “VarÃ°eldur”, we’d be running for the remote.
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 Ãg anda 1, Ãg anda 2, VarÃºÃ° 1, VarÃºÃ° 2, FjÃ¶gur pÃanó, and RembihnÃºtur.
