Spitfire Audio joins Olafur Arnalds for Chamber Evolutions

Bookmark and Share

Spitfire Audio joins forces with BAFTA-winning composer Ólafur Arnalds (Broadchurch, Kiasmos, Erased Tapes) to record an all-star ensemble performing his latest set of awe-inspiring evolutions. Based in Reykjavík, Iceland, Ólafur's approach to sound and composition has inspired a new generation to enjoy and create orchestral music, and following the success of his own Spitfire libraries and our Symphonic Strings Evolutions, he became the obvious choice to create Chamber Evolutions. Here, the 4,3,3,3,3 ensemble of British players (Violin I + II, Viola, Cello, Double Bass) led by long-term collaborator Viktor Orri Árnason perform a range of fragile yet warm beautifully evolving phrases, recorded at the world-famous Hall in Air Studios (London).

Christian Henson and Ólafur Arnalds sit down in Ólafur's studio in Iceland to talk about teaming up for their new orchestral sample library, Ólafur Arnalds Chamber Evolutions. Watch the attached video.
