The always magical and innovative Icelandic composer Olafur Arnalds has launched a new project, a “Living Film” shot around Iceland, check it out:
Welcome to Island Songs.
Over the next 7 weeks, I will be traveling to 7 different locations in Iceland – one per week – to record a series of new compositions.
In each location I will be collaborating with local artists to create and perform a new song and each week I will release the audio track and video performance, shot by director Baldvin Z. Each artist has their own unique story to tell and way of contributing, making this a diverse and evolving project.
Island Songs is a living musical film and therefore everything will be documented in real-time. You can join me by keeping an eye on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and IslandSongs.is for regular media and commentary.
New locations will be added to the map as we go and songs will be released every Monday.
