I was at the library, procrastinating on the 3 papers I was supposed to write. Then, I decided to open Youtube (The Devil’s Lair! or so Elrich said) and typed in “Olafur Arnalds”. I listened to “Ljósið”, “Lost Song”, and “0952” then I discovered the video posted above. It’s a 10 minute video depicting Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm improvising in front of an intimate crowd in Berlin. Okay, less talk more music! I shall leave you all to ponder upon the beauty of their music now. Enjoy!
