Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi has linked up with frequent collaborator Alex Somers and composer Paul Corley for an “endless” playlist titled Liminal. It contains solo work, remixes, film score excerpts, AI and generative music. In addition, the trio released Liminal, an “endless mixtape,” which is available on various streaming platforms.

“Sigur Rós played live a lot during the last two years,” Jónsi shared in a statement. “And inevitably you end up playing the rockier, more focussed songs, which means that loads of other stuff gets ignored. Liminal tries to do something different. It’s just me, Paul, and Alex in a dark room manipulating and mucking around with recordings, FX and vocals. We play and sing sparsely and focus on the atmosphere coming together. There’s a sound-reactive light sculpture and everyone can sit or lie down. It’s all very cosy and people seem to like it.”

Stream Liminal via YouTube above. The playlist, which “will be built over linear time into a never-finished project of ceaseless invention,” contains a new song from Jónsi called “Above, Below (Alex Somers Remix).”
