Bedroom community

Bedroom Community.

Bedroom Community is an Icelandic record label/collective which was created in 2006 by producer Valgeir Sigurðsson,[1] alongside fellow artists Nico Muhly[2] and Ben Frost,[3] later adding more artists to the roster. Based on the outskirts of Reykjavík, Iceland, Bedroom Community is also the home of Greenhouse Studios.

Bedroom Community was described by Drowned in Sound as "one of the best guarantors of quality, even importance, out there" known for its "emotionally powerful music".[4]

In 2011, Pierre-Alain Giraud[5] made a documentary film called Everything Everywhere All The Time,[6] which follows Sam Amidon, Ben Frost, Nico Muhly and Valgeir Sigurðsson on their collective tour, showcasing the music they’ve collaborated on and released individually under the Bedroom Community umbrella. The documentary was premiered at the Reykjavík International Film Festival, followed by screenings at CPH:DOX, Iceland Airwaves and more.[7]
