His music plays a big role in the documentary, and serves to emphasise its important message. To create the score, Valgeir drafted in the all-star Bedroom Community team with the expected results. The track on offer, Grýlukvæði, is likely to be one of the more chilling pieces of music you’ll hear this year. Based on an ancient Icelandic folk song, the BC gang’s re-arrangement is inventive and moving. Sam Amidon sings the tune (in Icelandic!), Nico Muhly played piano and organ, Ben Frost created electronics and beats and Valgeir produced and mixed everything.
