Song of the Day : [09/15]

Ólafur Arnalds : Ljósið


Olafur Arnalds is a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Iceland. His compositions are often slow and wordless and fall under the same relam as other artists like Clint Massel who composed requiem for a dream. The music is “thought-experiment”, the instruments and their arrangements are merely there to evoke certain emotions out of the listener, so ideally everyone imagines their own story and evolution to the particular piece of music. Kind of like a painter providing certain colors and a general scheme for everyone else to paint to as they see fit. This particular piece is taken from his album “Found Songs”, in april of this year he composed and released a track daily for seven days instantly making each track available within 24 hours and at the end of the 7 days all the tracks were compiled and made availble in a collection as found songs. The video that accompanies this track is one of the most aesthetically pleasing things I have seen and is a must see! Enjoy
