Kjartan Sveinsson, who was a former member of the popular Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós, will be presenting his new solo music exclusively tonight at the Motovun Film Festival…

Sveinsson joined Sigur Rós in 1998 and played a number of instruments before leaving the group a couple of years ago to pursue a solo career. He has composed scores for Academy Award nominated short films and is a member of the advisory board for Kraumur Music Fund, which aims to “strengthen Icelandic musical life, primarily by supporting young musicians in performing and presenting their works.”
