ISLAND SONGS Premiered in NYC
Over the period of 7 weeks, Ólafur Arnalds traveled to 7 different locations in Iceland – one per week – to record a series of new compositions.
In each location he collaborated with local artists to create and perform a new song and each week he released the audio track and video performance, shot by director Baldvin Z. Each artist has their own unique story to tell and way of contributing, making this a diverse and evolving project.
Island Songs is a living musical film and therefore everything is documented in real-time.
