Mute Song is delighted to announce the signing of the Icelandic composer and audio/visual artist Kira Kira, also known as Kristín Björk Kristjánsdóttir.
As a founding member of Kitchen Motors, a mischievous label and collective based on experiments in electronic music and arts, Kira Kira continually breaks boundaries between forms and genres through a repertoire that includes compositions for theatre, film, dance and art installations – as well as playful multi-disciplinary productions that exceed her work as merely a composer.
Kira Kira sprang from this collective in 1999 and to this day works with Kitchen Motors’ ethos at heart -a spirit of playfulness, exploring the relationship between experimental music and visual arts, collaborating with various artists.
Her first feature film as director and screenwriter, Grandma Lo-fi – The Basement Tapes of Sigridur Nielsdottir is just out and has been celebrated in New York’s Museum of Modern Art; MoMA, CPH Dox, SXSW and a plethora of other festivals around the world.
She has released 3 studio albums to date, Skotta, Our Map to The Monster Olympics and Feathermagnetik.
