ÓLAFUR ARNALDS (WITH ARNOR DAN)

Born 1986 in the suburban Icelandic town of Mosfellsbær, a few kilometers outside of Reykjavík, composer/performer Ólafur Arnalds has always enjoyed pushing boundaries with both his studio work and live-shows. Since the release of his debut album in 2007 he has built up a dedicated international following and is well established for his genre-crossing compositions blending classical, pop and ambient/electronica influences to a unique musical language. Now, he returns with his newest project “From Now I Am Winter” which he will be presenting live in the intimate setting of the Rockhal Club on 1 December 2013.

Starting out as drummer for several hardcore/metal bands, Ólafur was asked to write instrumental intros and outros for the album “Antigone” of German metal band Heaven Shall Burn. This led to more work in the field of neo-classical strings and piano based music, and ultimately to the release of “Eulogy for Evolution”. In 2008 he embarked on a tour with fellow Icelanders Sigur Rós. In April 2010 Ólafur released his second full-length album entitled “...and they have escaped the weight of darkness”, which was backed up with an extensive tour, including his first trip to China.

His third album titled “For Now I Am Winter” was released internationally in February 2013. Expanding on his previous work the new album features a full orchestra and – for the first time – introduces vocals to his soundworld. Icelandic singer Arnór Dan can be heard on four tracks of the album.

More recently Ólafur has been venturing into the world of films, writing his first Hollywood film score to Another Happy Day. He also had music in the hit film The Hunger Games and has been featured several times on popular American television show So You Think You Can Dance. For 2013 his scores include the music to the new ITV thriller series Broadchurch, starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman, as well as to the film Gimme Shelter, directed by Ron Krauss and starring Vanessa Hudgens and Brendan Fraser.

Expect a truly transporting evening of music from an artist of ever-growing stature, yet one who retains a down to earth sense of humour and balanced perspective. Don’t forget to secure your places for Ólafur Arnalds, performing live at the Rockhal on 1 December 2013.
