INNI, Sigur Rós’ second live film following 2007′s hugely-celebrated HEIMA, brings the band’s performance to life, artfully and intimately captured by French-Canadian director Vincent Morisset (Arcade Fire’s Miroir Noir). Interweaving archive material from the band’s first ten years with concert footage both ethereal and intense, INNI is a persuasive account of one of the most celebrated and influential rock bands of recent years.
TWO STAR SYMPHONY @ 7PM
One of Houston’s most brilliantly unusual music ensembles, TWO STAR SYMPHONY composes and performs all-original music in quartet and octet configurations, bringing modern instrumental music to a wide range of audiences, from classical music enthusiasts to first time listeners.
TWO STAR SYMPHONY’S dark, distinctive sound is a result of the writing style they employ and the instruments on which they perform. The band works differently than most classical ensembles in that every member is also a composer. Songs are written and arranged live as a group, with each player responsible for his or her own parts. By the time the songs are finished, the music is memorized. TWO STAR does not create or use sheet music, leaving each player free to focus on the other members and overall sound of the piece.
TWO STAR SYMPHONY won “Best Indefinable Band” at the Houston Press Music Awards in 2009 and 2010, and in 2008, The Greater Houston Convention and Business Bureau named TWO STAR SYMPHONY one of 15 reasons to visit Houston.
