The BAFTA Award winning artist, composer, musician & producer Ólafur Arnalds is back with a uniquely wired string quartet, a live drummer/percussionist & Ólafur’s playground of pianos & synthesisers.

Running from: Tue 30 & Wed 31 Oct.

Fresh off his projects Island Songs, TV scores such as Broadchurch and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams and a world tour with his electronic outfit KIASMOS, Ólafur and his team of fellow craftsmen and musicians are back in the lab, working on an all new live show.

The centrepiece of the show are two semi-generative, self-playing pianos that Ólafur and his team have spent over two years developing. Simultaneously a compositional tool and a innovative addition to the live performance.

“The self-playing pianos are a jolt to the creative process that forces me to try new and often surprising things. In a live setting the pianos are a integral part of the performance due to their generative nature. Each time they are played is a little different making every performance unique.” - Ólafur Arnalds
