We’re excited to be promoting Ólafur Arnalds’ return to Leeds – at the Town Hall!

BAFTA winning artist, composer, musician and producer Ólafur Arnalds has expanded his current worldwide tour, his first in over three years.

After extensive touring in Europe, USA and Australia in 2018 that included sold out shows in the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London and Sydney Opera House, Ólafur and his team of fellow craftsmen and musicians are back on the road with an all-new live show. Ólafur’s new album, re:member, was released in August 2018 via Mercury KX and has been praised by fans and critics alike.

The tour features a uniquely wired string quartet, a live drummer/percussionist and Ólafur’s playground of pianos and synthesisers.

The centrepiece of the show are two semi-generative, self-playing pianos that Ólafur and his team have spent over two years developing. They are simultaneously a compositional tool and an integral part to the live performance due to their generative nature. Each time they are played is a little different, making every performance unique.

Special guest is Lisa Morgenstern. Morgenstern is a German/Bulgarian pianist, singer and composer. Released in late 2018, Chameleon finds her taking dramatic strides to expand her range, matching her far-sighted approach to both synths and piano with her background in classical music. Recorded in collaboration with Berlin-based Argentinian producer and cellist Sebastian Plano, Chameleon’s nine ambitious tracks showcase her extraordinary, multi-octave-spanning voice on a collection that combines glacial elegance (Atlas), baroque synth-pop (My Boat), poignantly atmospheric electronica (Levitation) and expressive piano instrumentals (Codex).

The daughter of two orchestral musicians, Morgenstern– who can also be found singing in Berlin’s leading Bulgarian Women’s Choir – was exposed to music from a very young age and displayed a natural affinity towards the piano. She also trained while a teenager as a professional ballet dancer, something that’s lent her music a unique elegance and poise. In 2013, she released her debut full length, Amphibian, whose atmospheric production and dark subject matter earned plaudits for its dark romanticism, and she’s since established a reputation for her intensely emotional performance style.
