Through his interest in the music, film and writers of the Avant Garde, he became aware of the importance of improvisation as means of creating new music. Working with composer/trumpeter Leo Smith also inspired new ideas in improvisation. Sverrisson has improvised with Derek Bailey, Peter Brotzmann, Tim Berne, John Lurie, Nana Vasconselos and numerous other notable musicians. Sverrisson joined The Allan Holdsworth Band in 1991 and toured the world with the group.
He performed on the 1994 recording, "Hard Hat Area". He has also collaborated with Arto Lindsay, Towa Tei, Blonde Redhead and Peter Scherer. Although working in many different genres his principal focus is tape compositions. Sverrisson describes the process as taking audio snapshots of the interior architecture of sound. In his solo work, his interest in electronics and extended techniques of his instrument meet.

Current and upcoming releases include: Seremonie Pachora Pachora - Knitting Factory Works Chris Speed - Songlines Gemini (with Theo Bleckmann and Ben Monder) - Songlines.
