Divus Julius presents…Ólafur Arnalds

The mysterious and cold beauty of Iceland lands in Barcelona with musician Ólafur Arnalds. An expert in creating unique soundscapes, Arnalds combines a mastery of avant-garde electronica with classical music. After having played Sónar last year, he now fills the Palau de la Música Catalana with a grand piano, string quartet, drums and electronic basses to present his new album, ‘Re:member’ (2018). This latest effort sees him exploring new pathways with software called Stratus, which he created himself along with his friend Halldór Eldjárn, from the electropop group Sykur. Stratus creates different rhytmic textures of various complexities that play in two automated pianos.
