In 2006 Valgeir Sigurdsson founded label Bedroom Community in Reykjavik, Iceland. However, in truth BC is much more than just a record label, having built its very own small but powerful scene of musicians operating between ancestral folk and avant-garde electronica, to the point where they are now considered to be more like a musician collective than a publishing platform This is also in large part thanks to the Greenhouse recording studio, where all the label material is recorded.
Two other supreme musicians that have been with Sigurdsson from the outset are Australian Ben Frost and American Nico Muhly, later joined by the likes of Sam Amidon, Daniel Bjarnason, Paul Corley and Nadia Sirota among others. In 2011, French director Pierre-Alain Giraud directed the documentary "Everything Everywhere All The Time", a chronicle following the tour of Amidon, Frost, Muhly and Sigurðsson. In 2017 Bedroom Community celebrates its 10th anniversary with two concerts at Sonar by Day's SonarComplex Auditorium, headed by Valgeir Sigurdsson and Nico Muhly.
