Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds has shared his new Sunrise Session.
The composer kicked off a midwinter tradition lasting year, sharing the first Sunrise Session – crafted alongside JFDR – on the Winter Solstice.
With the Solstice drawing around once more, Ólafur Arnalds has teamed up alongside Josin and the Reykjavík Recording Orchestra to share a brand new Sunrise Session.
The intimate performance begins at sunrise, before easing into a solo ‘saman’ before performing ‘The Bottom Line’ in the company of Josin and the Reykjavík Recording Orchestra; the session closes out with Ólafur Arnalds’ Bonobo collaboration ‘Loom’.
In a note, the composer writes: “On this shortest day of the year, this is our tribute to brighter days ahead and I truly hope you enjoy it. Wishing you all wonderful holidays!”
