Here is a small (20 minutes long) collection of chamber music themes with some subtle electronic additions and alterations. The music centers around Mr. Arnalds' piano, with violin and/or cello stepping in to provide tasteful accompaniment from time to time. The style reminded me slightly of Satie in its often apparent simplicity, although some themes such as the duet "Ljosid" gradually become more complex as the instruments weave in and out of each other. Whatever it sounds like, though, I was completely captured by the beauty of this music. It's perfect for moments of peace and contemplation.
Personal and contemplative, telling stories and giving thanks. Olafur Arnalds’ music calls you back and back again. This composer’s music is so versatile in our changing lives; to play it once it is obviously one story, then to hear again in a different setting it transforms into another mood, a separate landscape. And this set of songs is like being in his home listening to him compose! Or finding a new language.
I became a huge fan of Olafur Analds because of this cd: FOUND SONGS. If you crave music that is sparse, containing silence, that is mostly centered around the piano, I think you'll love this album. The only complaint is that its very short, less than 30-40 minutes. When I downloaded it on Amazon, where I discovered it, I simply recorded it twice. Its gorgeous, neo-classical. Most highly recommended.
