Jónsi is known not only for his work with the experimental Icelandic rock group Sigur Rós, but also for his innovative use of sound and his elaborate, surreal stage performances. He's currently on tour for his first solo record Go, in a show that features stunning videos, animation and intricate lighting. It's an incredibly well-orchestrated and moving production.

Jónsi's sweetly unconventional style and quirky solo music is joyful and uplifting. Highly conceptual, he creates soundscapes with epic movement, all held together by his distinctive, often falsetto voice.

Jónsi's live shows are both whimsical and dark, drawing on themes of nature and humanity's relationship to it.

This webcast of Jónsi's show is part of All Songs Considered's ongoing series of full concerts, streamed live from Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club and other venues. Hear and download past shows in the All Songs concert archives.
