Following the sudden appearance of a beautiful-yet-random trailer on their website, and the discovery that it was for Inni; a Vincent Morisset-directed film that will premiere at Venice Days, we now have the details of release of the film.
Described as “the definitive Sigur Rós live experience,” Inni is a double-live album and a 75 minute live film. It was recorded over two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace, where Sigur Rós were joined by a live string section for their last show of the tour and their last before going on indefinite hiatus.
The film is filmed almost entirely monochromatically, which marks quite a contrast withg the band’s last DVD Heima. Vincent Morrisset has gone to pains to record and re-record the footage on to 16mm and through prisms and found objects to create a beautifully claustrophobic atmosphere.
The audio portion of the set is just over 100 minutes long and features the full live set with one unnamed omission. It is the first official live audio recording the band has put out from one of their full live shows and reportedly it is “far and away the best way of replicating the full-force effect of standing in front of [Sigur Rós].”
The actual release dates for Inni have not been revealed since they will probably be staggered for different territories, but it will be out at some point in November through Sigur Rós’ own Krunk label. If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for Inni (or wish to watch it again) then do so below.
