Icelandic avantgarde electronic trio Stilluppsteypa, featuring Heimir Bjorgulfsson, worked out a Dadaistic multi-layered style of soundsculpting that contrasted with the horror or high-brow trends of the era.
After the cartoonish The Best Pet Possible (Staalplaat, 1997),
Reduce by Reducing (Fire, 1998) and
Interferences Are Often Requested (Ritornell, 1999) were the classic
formulations of their (sarcastic) philosophy of sound.
Not a Laughing Matter But Rather a Matter of Laughs (Fire, 2000) and
Stories Part Five (Ritornell, 2001) were the last albums as a trio.
After the departure of Heimir Bjorgulfsson, Stilluppsteypa was pared down to
the duo of Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson and Helgi Thorsson that released
Immediate Past Is Of No Interest To Us (2002) and
Stilluppsteypa (Atak, 2004).
They also recorded a trilogy with Benny Nilsen:
Vikinga Brennivin (2005),
Drykkjuvisur Ohljodanna (Helen Scarsdale Agency, 2006) and
Passing Out (The Helen Scarsdale Agency, 2008).
Stillupsteypa's Heimir Bjorgulfsson also released Unspoken Word Tour (Brombron, 2002), a collaboration with multimedia artist Jonas Ohlsson, and the EP Machine Natura (Staalplaat).
Stilluppsteypa's Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson
Ship (Trente Oiseaux, 2001),
This One Comes Highly Recommended (Fire Inc, 2002),
A Little Lost (Bottrop-Boy, 2003).
