Olafur Arnalds has announced plans for ambitious new project 'Island Songs'.
The composer aims to write seven songs in as many weeks, stopping off at seven locations around Iceland.
The process will be captured by film-maker Baldvin Z, with the final collection of 'Island Songs' due to be released on August 8th.
Olafur comments: “I always want to make everything sound perfect, but I also know that perfection doesn’t necessarily make for good music. So these projects grew out of an internal fight with myself, a need to create something spontaneous and improvised.”
Check out a teaser below.
