Artist Portrait

Skúli Sverrisson

b, eb, *1966 IS, Reykjavík
Musician / Composer of Jazz and Electronic

Skuli Sverrisson is a composer/musician from Iceland living in New York. He performs in various places around New York, including The Knitting Factory and The Cooler. His solo performances draw attention for the mood he manages to create with his bass. Skuli Sverrisson stoically sedates his audience into realms of the strange, where unexpected sounds meander through sometimes inaudible compositional structures. Most people would not expect to experience what Skuli Sverrisson creates, "from a bass player". He breaks the conventional bounds and experiments with various sounds, rhythms, non-rhythms and electronic distortions.
