Makeshift Week – BTR talks to a STOMP performer about the makeshift-musical-instrument production.
Revolution In The Elbow of Ragnar Agnarsson Furniture Painter is an indie rock musical, written by Icelandic songwriter Ívar Páll Jónsson. Opening at the Minetta Lane Theatre in NYC, this surreal and philosophical story does indeed take place in the elbow of one Ragnar Agnarsson. Here, Jónsson and a few of his talented ensemble of musical collaborators join us in the studio to share stripped down renditions of the excellent music from the play, and to share a bit of the story behind the production.
BTR catches up with Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder to talk about the biggest collaborative rock opera in indie-rock history.
