The third album by Icelandic composer, Björk producer, and Bedroom Community founder Valgeir Sigurðsson is a score for a Stephen Petronio ballet that pits emotive chamber music (including piano from Nico Muhly) against furtive electronic frequencies. Architecture of Loss pits gravely emotive chamber music against furtive electronic frequencies. Drawing from the ballet's concepts of loss and forgetting, it's like something sneaky by Anton Webern and something subliminal from Touch Music playing in synch: bold, yearning themes often break free, but feelings of occlusion and indeterminacy linger. With an album title like that, Valgeir Sigurðsson immediately paints a picture of raw heartache, cold distress and practiced grief. The acoustic instrumentation is incredibly personal, intimate and close. The scratching strings, the rasping percussion, the moaning electronics – all make up an arsenal of hand-picked medium carefully selected for the score. Sigurðsson first came on the scene in 2007, with his solo debut, Ekvílibríum. Two years later, he composed his first film soundtrack, Draumalandið. And now, on Architecture Of Loss, which was ‘reconceived’ for its album form, Sigurðsson’s sound is even more mature, reflective and measured. And tracks like ‘Gone Not Forgotten’ are all encompassing in awe.

Guard Down" begins as a long, slow buildup of nervous strings and tones rises, but "The Crumbling" is where it all really kicks in. Besides being beautifully titled, the slips of strings suddenly cut in along with fried electronic tones, as a piano softly maintains a direct melody/rhythm that shifts to a sweeter but.
