Ólafur Arnalds - Found Songs (2009)


/Post-classical, Modern classical, Chamber music, Minimal, Mood music, Alternative/

Comment: Ólafur Arnalds is a 26-year-old musical luminary from Iceland whose soundscape can be described as "post-classical". More concretely, these 7 tracks (the set will be ended up at 20.27) takes either on lonely but doleful piano chords or are accompanied by manipulated orchestrations and austere noises and creepy cadences at the backdrop. Emotionally Arnalds´ soundscape is suggestive and touching full of monochromatic feels and half-shades. The seeds and whiffs of wintry, nordic freshness are represented everywhere on this issue.
