In 2017, it's easy for music to feel disposable. Every song ever made is at your fingertips. We want to get back to respecting the album as an art form. Go offline, phones away... Let's treat records the way we'd treat a film.In this session, we will undergo a process that combines modern psychology, mindfulness and music therapy techniques while listening to a record in full; a space for music lovers to share. Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention, on purpose. A means of bringing that attention to the moment and a scientifically validated way of decreasing stress. This paves the way for a clearer focus and a more direct access to your creative channel. Featuring Ágætis Byrjun by Sigur Rós, we’ll open your mind and senses to the power of tuning out of everyday noise and tuning in to a world of sound.

“Sigur Rós effortlessly make music that is massive, glacial, and sparse..... They are the first vital band of the 21st Century”- 9.4/10 - Pitchfork“72 minutes of sonically rich, emotionally pulverizing perfection…the signature Sigur Rós masterpiece” - Stereogum “Beautiful and alien… like being plunged into an Atlantis where language, gender and songforms were largely indeterminate” - Rolling Stone
