The Icelandic multi-instrumentalist and composer's fourth solo LP finds him working with Stratus, a piece of computer software he programmed over two years in collaboration with Halldor Eldjarn.
It uses MIDI values triggered by what Arnalds plays on his primary piano (equipped with a Moog Piano Bar) to generate different sequences on two player pianos. The process can create randomized feedback and lead to progressions that might be unplayable by conventional methods. Arnalds has described it as a way to change up his creative thinking: "You get ideas that you would never get otherwise, just because this inspired those ideas."
Besides highlighting the Stratus setup-and using the software to generate its cover artwork-Arnalds also makes use of strings, synths, electronics and live percussion on re:member.
Arnalds first gave us a taste of the album came back in April, when he released its title track. He is currently taking re:member on an international tour including dates in Australia in November & December.
Vinyl release of Olafur Arnalds - Re:Member (Vinyl). Released through DECCA CLASSICS and available on LP.
