This year we are psyched to team up with ISO for the amazing 2014 Airwaves lineup!

Icelandic composer Jˇhann Jˇhannsson performs the Icelandic premiere of his moving score to The Miners' Hymns, a haunting and lyrical portrait of Britain's industrial past by American artist film maker Bill Morrison.

Using rarely seen archive film footage spanning 100 years, The Miners' Hymns depicts the ill-fated coal mining communities of North East England, the harsh reality ofminers' lives and the extraordinary, celebratory annual Durham Miners' Gala. The soundtrack draws on the brass music heritage of the northeast of England, a tradition closely linked with the mines stretching back almost 200 years and still very much alive today

Jˇhann Jˇhannsson has created a brand new orchestration of the piece especially for the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra which will be conducted by Gu­ni Franzson in the Eldborg performance space in Harpa Concert Hall.

Now, here's the scoop on scoring your ticket. The show is included in the Iceland Airwaves ticket price, but please note that there are a limited amount of tickets available for wristband holders. Tickets will be handed out to festival-goers on a first-come-first-served basis Thursday, November 6 at noon in the Iceland Airwaves Media Center at Harpa. For those of you who want to guarantee your spot, the Iceland Symphony Orchestra isáalso selling tickets.
