Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson was born in Akureyri, Iceland in 1977. He studied sound art at the Fachochschule in Hannover,
Germany from 1998 to 2003 and studied electronic composition in the Royal Konservatorium í Den Haag, Holland.
Sigtryggur has performed in various concerts and visual arts exhibitions under his own name and
with the electronic duet Stilluppsteypa.

His work on CD has been variously described as collage, quiet drone manipulations, and calm and minimal, which offer a range
of still, contemplative moments, contrasted with more discordant (though not necessarily noisy) ones.
