Olafur Arnalds

Ólafur Arnalds is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer who started as a drummer for a series of metal bands in his native Iceland. His entry into the neo-classical field was somewhat accidental. After German band Heaven Shall Burn heard some solo demo material, they asked him to provide piano-and-string pieces for their 2004 album Antigone. The Erased Tapes label heard the album, was impressed with Arnalds' contributions, and contacted him about recording a full album of material in that vein. The life-cycle concept album Eulogy for Evolution, released in 2007, was the result, with Arnalds -- primarily on piano -- supported by a string quartet. A trio of EPs followed in 2008 and 2009. In 2010, Arnalds provided the scores for the 13-minute short Blinky TM and the feature-length Órói (Jitters), and he also released …And They Have Escaped the Weight of Darkness, his second proper album. His score for Sam Levinson's Another Happy Day (2011) greatly increased his profile, as he continued to release works like Stare (2012) -- a collaborative EP with Nils Frahm -- and For Now I Am Winter (2013). Later that year, Arnaulds' scored the BBC television series Broadchurch, which produced its own soundtrack. A digital download of the composer's score for Ronald Krauss' film Gimme Shelter was released in February of 2014, followed by a physical release in April. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

Olafur's music brings raw emotion to the listeners. He is by far my favourite composer for being able to suspend the listener from the emotions of depression and joy with only the first few cords.

Such peaceful music with rich emotion. Makes you stop whatever you are doing and listen.

I heard 3055, and went to Youtube to see the official video, and was sucked in. lol This guy is a truly amazing artist: he has great dimensionali t y , wonderful transitions, and an overall talent for composititon , both in his music and his visual art, if he's involved in the making of his videos.

breath taking!

Considering the guy started in a rock band.....I gotta say the man has skill. Good transitions, emotionally charged and easy on the ear tongue. Just might have to start a new station.

To me, this song sort of tells a story. It's a bit sad in the beginning, but towards the end it becomes more spiritual and uplifting. It's really beautiful how someone can write a story without words.

Love it so sad then a little change of heart in the song .. just what I need :P :)

Olafur Arnalds orchestrated many splendid instrumental s filled with quiet but inspired composition. I rate this song five star for its stimulated beats and electronic solo genius.

Amazes me how God made such a beautiful man to compose such fathomable music to better understand ourselves as well as to touch our souls in a way no one ever has or will.

Sometimes a song sneaks up on me, demands I turn my attention away from work and then proceeds to make my heart soar without asking permission. It comes as no surprise that 3055 comes off an album called "Made in Iceland" ... Stunning land and seascape daydreams ensued.
