Sigurður Guðjónsson in collaboration with Spektral Quartet at Adler Planetarium

Today marks the announcement of a Chicago premiere of Enigma, a live music and 360-degree video experience by Sigurður Guðjónsson and composer Anna Þorvalsdóttir.

The piece is co-produced with the Adler Planetarium and is part of Spektral Quartet‘s newly released program for the year 2020.

This immersive piece brings listeners in touch with the sublime and the unknown, makes contact with tangible reality and imagined panoramas, and expands our sense of perspective exponentially.
