Stilluppsteypa is a group of sound sculpture artists known for collaborating with a wide range of experimental musicians. Originally from Iceland, the three members have recently relocated to mainland Europe. The group has worked with
The Hafler Trio, Nurse With Wound, Zoviet France, and Stock, Hausen, and Walkman. Not a laughing matter, but a matter of laughs is no exception to their rule of bringing all the right people into the studio. This record features the trumpet of Spaceheads' Andy Diagram and the vocals of Japanese pop icon Hanayo. Their music is improvised for the most part, and they have no qualms about using any sound source they can get their hands on. What makes Stilluppsteypa unique is their ability to meld disparate elements together to make interesting and cohesive compositions.
