Tonik Ensemble - Airwaves off-venue

Bío Paradís

Tonik ensemble

Tonik Ensemble is the musical output of Icelander Anton Kaldal Ágústsson. Exploring the vast expanse of the electronic spectrum the soundscape is a mix of electronics and the more organic live instruments. It is a strong signature sound of contrasts: rich and stripped bare, minimalist but intricate, finely crafted and yet very instinctive. Together with an ever-evolving cast of talented collaborators, the output is a deep, atmospheric yet soulful pseudo-techno.

Svein Guðmundsson - Airwaves off-venue

Bío Paradís

Svein gudmundsson

In the past Sveinn has been quite shy about his songwriting. Besides playing bass in various garage bands as a teenager and being a member in a very manly men’s choir for two years he has kept a low profile. That is until now with the release of his debut album “Fyrir herra Spock, MacGyver og mig”. His music can be described as lo-fi, folkie and melodic sounds with self-reflective lyrics about stomachaches, nephews, vulcans, cats and survival experts among other things. The songs are based up with an acoustic guitar and a voice mixed with occasional trombone, melodica, upright and electric bass, electric guitar and typewriter.

Skelkur í bringu - Airwaves off-venue

Bío Paradís

Skelkur i bringu

Skelkur í bringu play simple raw noise-rock/punk with catchy melodies and psychedelic freakouts. Rockabilly, punk and doom metal influences mixed with lively performance. The band uses custom stage decorations such as a homemade light show and trippy outfits. When the venue supports it they also use backdrop videos as a part of the act. The performances are dangerous but loose. The songs deal with dark fantasies, nonsense and altered states of consciousness.

Antimony - Airwaves off-venue

Bío Paradís


Antimony is a coldwave band from Reykjavík, Iceland made up of RX Beckett (vocals), Birgir Sigurjón Birgisson (bass) and Sigurður Angantýsson (electronics and production). Together they combine elements of early 80s synthpop, gloomy Lynchian sexuality and sci-fi horror with androgynous DIY aesthetics.

Sykur - Airwaves off-venue

Bío Paradís


Shimmering string synths and scintillating arpeggios, rumbling bass that resonates within your chest, more vocal power than any one person should have a right to possess.

Agent Fresco - Airwaves off-venue

Bío Paradís

Agent fresco air

Hailing from Iceland, Agent Fresco’s music is a reflection of this ever-changing landscape, with its overwhelming sense of freedom and vastness. This is a progressive art rock band that needs to be experienced from a few steps back to be grasped in its entirety, like a bold work of art. Even by the wide-open standards of Icelandic music Agent Fresco’s interpretation of the rock genre is unusually soulful and multi-layered, with a quicksilver rhythmic pulse and mother-of-pearl harmonies reflecting every mood colour imaginable. In the last couple of years, their iridescent, propulsive, arty and highly addictive music made the highly esteemed Reykjavik band become the favourite of a music-loving nation and an act sparking international interest.

Sumar Stelpur - Airwaves off-venue

Bárujárn - Airwaves off-venue

Bío Paradís

B c3 a1ruj c3 a1rn

Bárujárn was founded in 2008 after members met at a industrial showcase for corrugated iron and related suplies in Hafnir city on the wind barren south coast of Iceland. The music was to represent the black sands and waves that is the heart and life of the booming Icelandic surfer culture. Determined to succeed in a world full of tears the band went on to wither in the ashes of their poorly rolled cigarettes through relentless unprofessionalism, constant poverty and petty crime. They released an EP in 2010 commonly mistaken for the crushed remnants of a grilled sandwich due to its luxurious aluminum foil wrapping. This packaging failure resulted in the frequent discarding of the EP to the trash bin at local radio stations and hence no airplay. Theraminist Hekla Magnúsdóttir quit the band in 2011 partly because of an artistic misunderstanding but mostly due to frequent sexist remarks and the general decadence of the remaining members. As of this writing their main accomplishments subsists of a failed make it or break it tour through the neighboring Farao islands, supporting local child star turned hot-shot Brandur Enni and getting to the semi finals in the unofficial battle of the bands. After years of procrastination their debut album was released in 2013. They are currently working on their second and third efforts.

English below Svartir sunnudagar í Bíó Paradís kynna: Meistaraverkið The Holy Mountain sem sýnt er styrktar leikstjóranum Alejandro Jodorowsky Eitt af helstu stórvirkjum kvikmyndasögunnar, The Holy Mountain eftir chileanska leikstjórann Alejandro Jodorowsky verður sýnt í Bíó Paradís sunnudaginn 10. janúar kl.8. Myndin verður sýnd á vegum Svartra sunnudaga og ágóði af miðasölu rennur til styrktar á gerð nýjustu kvikmyndar Jodorowskys, Endless Poetry. Jodorowsky, fæddur 1929 er goðsagnakenndur leikstjóri og kvikmyndin The Holy Mountain frá 1973 er án efa hans frægasta. Hún er mjög súrrealísk könnun á dulspeki hins vestræna heims og flokkast meira sem listaverk heldur en bíómynd og er uppfull af dulrænum táknum. Jodorowsky, sem er úkraínskur gyðingur fæddur í Chile hefur gert fjölmargar myndir um ævina, meðal annars El Topo (1970) Santa Sangre (1989) og einnig er frægt að hann ætlaði að gera mynd úr vísindaskáldsögunni Dune sem síðar var leikstýrt af David Lynch. Fjallað er um gerð myndarinnar sem aldrei varð í frægri heimildarmynd sem nefnist Jodorowsky’s Dune. Nú er leikstjórinn að verða níræður og er að gera sína síðustu kvikmynd sem nefnist Endless Poetry. Til þess að fjármagna þessa mynd hefur hann sett upp fjáröflun á IndieGogo þar sem velunnarar listrænna kvikmynda geta stutt við gerð hennar. Hópur aðdáenda Jodoroskys hefur nú tekið sig saman með veglegum stuðningi frá Bíó Paradís til að sýna meistaraverkið The Holy Mountain á sunnudaginn sem hluta af kvikmyndaröðinni Svartir sunnudagar. Svartir sunnudagar eru bíókvöld með þemanu költ og klassískar myndir í Bíó Paradís undir listrænni stjórn Hugleiks Dagssonar, Sigurjóns Kjartanssonar og Sjóns. Ágóði af aðgangseyri að myndinni rennur í fjármögnun nýjustu myndar Jodorowskys. Leikstjórinn hefur sjálfur lagt blessun sína yfir sýninguna og er Íslendingum þakklátur fyrir framlag sitt til kvikmyndalistarinnar. The Holy Mountain verður sýnd í tveimur sölum samtímis nú á sunnudaginn kl. 20 en búast má við mikilli aðsókn kvikmyndaunnenda á þessum einstaka viðburði og mælt með að tryggja sér miða tímanlega. Plakatið við viðburðinn er teikning eftir myndlistarmanninn Pál Banine og Guðmund Odd Magnússon (Godd) sem gerði letrið. In a corrupt, greed-fueled world, a powerful alchemist leads a Christ-like character and seven materialistic figures to the Holy Mountain, where they hope to achieve enlightenment. ! Holy Mountain screened January 10th at 20:00! Cult movie The Holy Mountain, Alejandro Jodorowsky's 1973 masterpiece will be screened at Bíó Paradís on Sunday night. Proceeds from ticket sales go to support Jodorowsky's indiegogo funding campaign for his new film, Endless Poetry. Jodorowsky, born in 1929 is a legendary director with The Holy Mountain undoubtedly being his most famous film. It is a surreal and very symbolic fantasy film exloring the esoterisim of western culture. Among the chilean-born directors other films are El Topo and (1970), Santa Sangre (1989) and Jodorowsky famously attempted to film Frank Herbert's 1965 science fiction novel Dune, later filmed by David Lynch. The documentary Jodorowsky's Dune focuses on this attempt. Jodorowsky, who is now 86 years old is making his last film, Endless Poetry and has set up an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to fund the movie. Proceeds of the screening of The Holy Mountain, which will take place in Bíó Paradís at 8 pm on Sunday, January 10th will be donated to the campaign. The film forms part of the Svartir sunnudagar film nights at the cinema, which feature cult and classical movies on Sundays curated by author and illustrator Hugleikur Dagsson, author Sjón and writer and producer Sigurjón Kjartansson. Jodorowsky himself has sent his blessings and thanks for the screening on Sunday. The poster for the event was designed by artist Páll Banine with the typography by professor at the Iceland Academy of the Arts, Goddur. Tiickets available at Bíó Paradís.

English below Sagan af Jane Eyre er jafn mögnuð og fyrir 170 árum síðan. Um er að ræða hispurslausa og mikilfenglega uppfærslu á sögunni um baráttu einnar konu fyrir frelsi og lífsgæðum á eigin forsendum. Munaðarleysinginn Jane Eyre tekst á við hindranir í lífinu þar sem hún glímir við fátækt, óréttlæti og bitur svik, en hún ákveður einn daginn að taka endanlega ákvörðun um það að fylgja hjarta sínu. ★★★★★ ‘Enchanting.

This bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms. From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, Jane Eyre’s spirited heroine faces life’s obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart. This acclaimed re-imagining of Brontë’s masterpiece was first staged by Bristol Old Vic last year, when the story was performed over two evenings. Director Sally Cookson now brings her celebrated production to the National, presented as a single, exhilarating performance. ★★★★★ ‘Enchanting. Magnificent.

The Room í Bíó Paradís 22. janúar

Bíó Paradís sýnir bandarísku cult-myndina The Room þann 22. janúar. The Room er þekkt fyrir að vera ein versta mynd sem gerð hefur verið. Hún kom út árið 2003 og var sýnd við einstaklega dræmar viðtökur í Los Angeles (flestir gestir vildu fá endurgreitt áður en hálftími var liðinn) þar sem ungir kvikmyndaáhugamenn rákust á hana og sáu húmorinn í hörmungunum. Orðspor hennar dreifðist og er hún í dag orðin að einni bestu miðnæturskemmtun sem kvikmyndahúsin hafa upp á að bjóða. Þar draga áhorfendur hana sundur og saman í háði á sama tíma og þeir undra sig á því hvernig hægt er að gera svona góða vonda mynd. Myndin sjálf fjallar um Johnny, leiknum af leikstjóra, handritshöfundi og framleiðanda myndarinnar, Tommy Wiseau, og brösugt samband hans við kærustu sína, Lisu, og besta vin sinn Mark (ó hæ! Mark), sem færir hann að lokum á ystu nöf andlega. Wiseau vann mikið með arfleifð James Dean og Tennesee Williams við gerð hennar, en allar kvikmyndalegar vísanir og úrvinnsla hefða fara, vægast sagt, fyrir ofan garð og neðan í höndum herra Wiseau. The Room – besta versta mynd sem gerð hefur verið! Björgvin Franz Gíslason, leikari, heillaðist af költ kvikmyndum þegar hann bjó í Minneapolis. Á einni miðnætursýningunni á The Room varð hann þess heiðurs aðnjótandi að berja augum tvo aðalleikara myndarinnar, Tommy Wiseau og Greg Sestero, þar sem þeir svöruðu spurningum úr sal og árituðu varning fyrir æsta aðdáendur. Gunnar Tómas Kristófersson er kvikmyndafræðingur og doktorsnemi og stundakennari í kvikmyndafræði við Háskóla Íslands. Hann hefur sérstakan áhuga á költmyndum og sér í lagi The Room og skrifaði MA ritgerð um költmyndir ásamt því að kenna námskeið um þær við HÍ haustið 2015. Björgvin og Gunnar Tómas hafa áður stjórnað þátttökusýningum á The Room, bæði í Háskóla Íslands og Háskólanum á Akureyri og munu meðal annars kenna áhorfendum hvað felst í “lifandi” þáttöku kvikmyndinarinnar ásamt því að útskýra í stuttu máli hvað það er sem gerir The Room að költi þar sem velt verður vöngum yfir því hvað í ósköpunum Tommy Wiseau sé. // Johnny is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored of him and decides to seduce Johnny’s best friend, Mark. From there, nothing will be the same again.
