Check out my latest The Beat Boxed: Jonsi, one of my favorites of the moment! So super bummed I missed his LA concert a few weeks ago. Did any of you go?!
Check out the amazing video for “Go Do”:
Jónsi - Go Do from Jónsi on Vimeo.
The video production is absolutely brilliant and the live stage shows take the performance to an entirely different level. 59 Productions has created a truly mind blowing show that blasts your senses through a hybrid of art and performance. The journey you go on throughout Jónsi’s show is something you will never be prepared for. The main inspiration behind the live stage shows was the photography of the 2008 fires at Deyrolles, the strangest and most famous taxidermy shop in Paris. As devastating as this was, photographer Laurent Bochet was able to capture this hauntingly beautiful moment that has become such an inspiration to many. 59 productions has taken these moments and Jónsi’s creative ideas and translated this into a dynamic visual performance of life, death, and freedom of animals and nature. Take a peek into the making of the live show:Jónsi live show by 59 Productions from Jónsi on Vimeo.
Not like that in itself isn’t enough inspiration, but the Jónsi’s song “Go Do” is being used in the latest commercial for Dulux’s Let’s Colour Project. This project is all about spreading color throughout the world to engage and bring happiness into communities that were once gray.

As I translate Jónsi’s music into an interior I have been very influenced by both the animal and nature concept behind Jónsi’s live shows and the Let’s Colour Project. I have combined the bold and brilliant colors with the raw and lifeless to create a contrast with depth and emotion. The pattern and texture in each of the pieces evoke a sense of excitement. While the energy in this room swirls around and dances with you!
