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 announced a new album, re:member, to be released on August 24 via Mercury KX. The first two singles from the album, title track re:member and unfold, have excited and delighted fans across the globe. And now Ólafur and his team of fellow craftsmen and musicians are back on the road with an all-new live show.
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.
