Ambient music mastermind Ólafur Arnalds breaks out of his shell with new album re:member.
A neo-classical wonder who has collaborated with Nils Frahm and soundtracked Broadchurch, Iceland’s BAFTA-winning pianist, composer, musician and producer Ólafur Arnalds returns to present past, current and brand-new material in a new light.
Renowned for atmospheric soundscapes that weave soaring melodies with crunchy beats, the concert features a uniquely wired ensemble of a string quartet, percussion and Arnalds’ playground of pianos and synthesisers. The centrepiece of the show is a generative algorithm device he designed to control two self-playing pianos — acting as one. ‘Each time they are played is a little different, making every performance unique,’ says Arnalds.

Don’t miss the most forward-looking concerts of the year when Arnalds brings his raw and sublime music to the acoustic surrounds of Elisabeth Murdoch Hall.
Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre in arrangement with Top Shelf
