For SEQUENCES 2008 Rúrí will present Vocal IV in collaboration with musician and composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. Vocal IV is an elaborate performance with diverse elements- video, music, sound art, waterfall swish, nature sounds and texts from the international discussion that Rúrí has collected about water. This is the first time Rúrí has worked with a composer for a performance. Together Rúri and Jóhann have teamed up with an Icelandic choir, Matthias Hemstock, percussionist player, and a group of electric guitar players to create a vast soundscape.
