Sunrise Session

Ólafur Arnalds is an Icelandic composer of note, I’ve featured him here a few times.

Last December, on the equinox, he assembled a group of musicians in Reykjavík to perform a suite of his music, starting at sunrise (10:30!) and continuing on into the afternoon. This is real music, played by real musicians in real time. It also features JFDR (starting about 8:30) singing one of the compositions.

JFDR has also been in the news, with a new EP Dream On and in an interview about its gestation and the creation of her “chicken video”.
