Bedroom Community, “a creative hub of sonic geniuses that continues to evolve and produce incredible work” (BlackBook Magazine) operates out of Iceland as a collective and record label dedicated to the musical innovations of a close knit group of composers and performers including Daníel Bjarnason, Sam Amidon and Valgeir Sigurðsson. Celebrated as “a lightning rod at the juncture where the ambition of classical music meets the aesthetics of indie music” (Pitchfork), the collective teams up with Liquid Music, Finnish violinist and SPCO Artistic Partner Pekka Kuusisto, primordial songstress Mariam Wallentin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Mariam the Believer) and the American Swedish Institute for a one of a kind performance on the grounds of the beautiful and historic Turnblad Mansion. Visitors can also experience The Weather Diaries, an art exhibition exploring fashion from Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.
