Last week, Riceboy Sleeps was performed for the first time live at the Church of St Paul the Apostle in New York City, along with the contemporary classical piece ‘Credo’ by Kjartan of Sigur Rós. The works were performed by The Latvian National Choir and the Wordless Music Orchestra. Jónsi & Alex joined the groups onstage for the Riceboy Sleeps concert, Jónsi occasionally lending a little bit of his voice to the performance.
The performance was broadcast on WQXR’s contemporary classical music stream Q2. Please find a direct link below to the on-demand audio stream.
