Kiasmos

26 May 2015: Rough Trade NYC — Brooklyn, NY

Iceland’s Ólafur Arnalds continues to gain renown with his diverse solo and collaborative projects. His For Now I am Winter was well-reviewed, he’s done the soundtrack for the detective drama Broadchurch, and his neo-classical project with Alice Sara Ott, The Chopin Project is one of the most intriguing albums I’ve come across in 2015. Kiasmos, a collaboration with Janus Rasmussen, a member of electro-pop Bloodgroup, is a project that began in 2009. But the duo only released their first full-length album last year. Though I didn’t discover it till this year, I was fortunate enough to catch Kiasmos in New York on a rare tour—one that will wrap up soon with a couple California shows before a few European dates (listed below).
