The internationally acclaimed BAFTA winner and Emmy-nominated Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds is known as the "superstar of contemporary instrumental music" thanks to his masterful fusion of symphonic strings and piano with subtle electronica.
While Ólafur's last highly acclaimed album, re: member, was a technological triumph with his groundbreaking, self-playing Stratus pianos, his new album, some kind of peace, is completely different and more personal for him.
some kind of peace is about what it means to be alive, to dare and to be vulnerable. It is a personal journey, told by Ólafur's most introspective music to date, against the backdrop of a world plunged into chaos. He processes real pieces of his life story on the album, using masterly sampling techniques to open a window into his experiences for the listener.
