Ólafur Arnalds

neo-classical

Less we spoke, more we listened. “The Light” is directed by Esteban Diácono for Ólafur Arnalds‘s Found Songs. Seven pieces recorded during seven days at his apartment in Reykjavík with piano, strings, twitter and flickr.

Gentle fireworks.

    Nice one, I already wanted to send you this artist some time ago ;)
    I still like his album “Eulogy for Evolution” most.

    Wow, this video is simply beautiful and hypnotizing. I love this kind of chill music on a rainy day, or even just playing in the background while doing some work.

    Beautiful piece this. This video has been floating around in the motion graphics community for a while, where I first saw it.

    Raein is perfection.

  15. Ian D. :

    WTF do they put in the water over in Iceland? Why does everyone over there just make beautiful things all day long?

  16. Sabina :

    Perfect rainy-day music. So simple, but so beautiful and melodic… definitely puts you in a mood.

  17. nico :

    I love this! will probably always be closely associated with balmorhea in my head, because those two make up most of my “library soundtrack” while I’m writing my final thesis. sometimes I feel that Iam wasting them listening to them all day, but their music is just so beautiful and relaxing.
