Tonight Jónsi & Alex Somers kick off the first-ever North American live performances of their landmark ambient album Riceboy Sleeps with a performance at Paramount Theatre in Seattle. To mark the start of the tour and the 10th anniversary of the album the duo have shared a new longform companion work Lost And Found.

 "Lost And Found is a sibling album to Riceboy Sleeps," says Somers. "It falls somewhere between what was, what is, and what will be. Tape experiments, modular synth processing, and acoustic soundscapes drift in and out of focus. Sound friends that you may have heard or seen before appear; familiar, but different." 
 
Lost And Found was created by Jónsi & Alex Somers in collaboration with friend and producer Sidney Satorsky. "The album has no linear relationship to Riceboy Sleeps," says Somers. "It treats Riceboy Sleeps as a place to begin and finds moments from that album to open up to new moments that at times give glimpses of places within Riceboy Sleeps and at other times put you somewhere entirely new."
