Jonsi (of Sigur Ros) - Teaser Website

Just Tuesday, I received a brief email from the Sigur-Ros.co.uk website with a simple block of text, indicating the website, www.jonsi.com.

Over the last couple of days, and for the next two presumably, each letter in Jón þor (Jónsi) Birgisson's name has come alive. Simply clicking on a character produces some delicately drawn earthly designs that link thematically to a snippet of music.

The J becomes entangled in leafy vines, O fits inside a contorted tree branch with an raven fluttering in at the end, and N has growing stalks which lead into a final burst of small colored leaves.

I dont wan't to spoil the surprise of hearing the music, so you should see the animations and judge yourself. So from here, go forth and listen and bookmark it for the next two letters.

Otherwise [spoiler alert], I must say N is a surprisingly wonderful celebration that I am eagerly waiting to hear the entirety of.
