Ólafur Arnalds

Ólafur Arnalds is a renowned  Icelandic composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer. Arnalds has been active for years with leading London-based label Erased Tapes; he forms movements such as neo-classical, minimal, experimental techno and post-rock into his own, completely unique vocabulary. Nowadays, Arnalds is a much sought-after for soundtracks, composing music for British TV show Broadchurch, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams and Ronald Krauss’s film Gimme Shelter. With Janus Rasmussen of Bloodgroup he forms the electronic duo Kiasmos.

Ólafur Arnalds wouldn’t be Ólafur Arnalds if he didn’t continue to innovate and toy with the possibilities of music. With an intimate circle of players he is working on a brand new live show. This time around, he comes with a string quartet with uniquely crafted strings, a drummer / percussionist and an orchestra of self-playing pianos and synthesizers (!). Long story short, sheer bewilderment is once again the default setting in the startling world of Ólafur Arnalds.
