Intimate writing piano melodies. Designed for composers, songwriters and producers, this intimate and deep instrument, created by BAFTA laureate composer Olafur Arnalds, is recorded at his studio in Reykjavik, Iceland. It is centered around the characteristic felt grand piano, as well as a comprehensive suite of inspiring sound manipulation and progressive synth sounds designed as the artist intended.
Our second Spitfire collaboration with BAFTA-awarded multi-instrumental producer and composer Olafur Arnalds blends organic instruments with loops and punchy beats to create texture tracks and scores, from ambient to electronic.
So many virtual toolkit libraries focus on the art of production, while the nuanced and beautiful Olafur Arnalds Composer Toolkit was designed with the author in mind. Olafur envisioned what his core set of sounds would be that would allow him to continue to release original, inspiring and exciting music wherever he is in the world. Spitfire’s expert team of technicians, musicians and engineers went down to Olafur’s workshop in Reykjavik, working closely with the composer to capture the essence of his approach and capture the spirit of his environment.
