RBMA presents

Halldór Eldjárn


  • Saturday 18 20:00 - 20:30

    SonarComplex by Red Bull Music Academy - Kaldalón

Halldór Eldjárn is an Icelandic drummer, musician and a computer scientist, mostly known for his band SYKUR. His solo performance consists mainly of robotic instruments he has built, playing along to his live drumming. His brother, Úlfur Eldjárn (Apparat Organ Quartet) joins him onstage as an electronic saxophone expert and synthesizer genius, providing rich aural, tonal and timbral content for their respective audiences.

Halldór's music can be described as melodic robo-tronica with a human touch. But do the robots have a human touch or are the humans robotic? Answers are not included, but this concert might give a hint.
