Composer, multi-instrumentalist and electronic performer Olafur Arnalds, the BAFTA award winning performer, creates and curates a select quartet of unique string performers, performing his extraordinarily personal and inspiring aesthetic. With our Evo Grid series, composers, producers and songwriters gain instant inspiration and unfathomable creative edge.
A truly original and inspiring set of instruments, conceived in Reykjavik, Iceland, recorded in Berlin, Germany and realized in London, England, which attracts the talents of some true independent thinkers who shed new light on classical European instruments, how to play, use them, handle them them, record and process them in a completely new way.
Recorded in the ultra-classy surroundings of Voxton Berlin studios, Olafur’s carefully curated quartet includes the talents of multi-instrumentalist, composer and often co-writer Viktor Orri Arnason alongside sophisticated talented cellist Sebastian Selke.
Olafur Arnalds dictated his strict and original approach to how best to select the microphone, preamps and external devices for this project.
