BAFTA winning artist, composer, musician and producer Ólafur Arnalds has expanded his current worldwide tour, his first in over three years.
After a sold out European and US run this spring that included the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London, Ólafur and his team of fellow craftsmen and musicians are back on the road with an all-new live show. Ólafur’s new album, re:member, was released on August 24 via Mercury KX and has been praised by fans and critics alike.
The tour features a uniquely wired string quartet, a live drummer/percussionist and Ólafur’s playground of pianos and synthesisers.
The centrepiece of the show are two semi-generative, self-playing pianos that Ólafur and his team have spent over two years developing. They are simultaneously a compositional tool and an integral part to the live performance due to their generative nature. Each time they are played is a little different, making every performance unique.
