Ólafur Arnalds New Project :: Island Songs
June 21st, 2016 | News
Over the next 7 weeks, he’ll be traveling to 7 different locations in Iceland – one per week – to record a series of new compositions.
In each location he will be collaborating with local artists to create and perform a new song and each week a brand new audio track and video performance will be released, 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 Ólafur 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 they go and songs will be released every Monday.
On Monday Ólafur and his team of 15 people travelled to Hvammstangi where they recorded the first song.
He’ll be broadcasting LIVE on Facebook from the various locations all the coming weeks to tell you more about the project and introduce you to his collaborators.
