Snorri Hallgrímsson - Orbit | mr017

The songs explore the difficulties of living in and moving between vastly different places: from Mexico’s sunny days to Iceland’s long winter nights and their emotional toll.     Orbit is also about people met along the way, of friends and family whose absence is bittersweet.

The songs explore the difficulties of living in and moving between vastly different places: from Mexico’s sunny days to Iceland’s long winter nights and their emotional toll. Orbit is also about people met along the way, of friends and family whose absence is bittersweet.

'Orbit' is the debut album by composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Snorri Hallgrímsson. Recorded primarily at Ólafur Arnalds’s studio in Reykjavík, 'Orbit' sees Hallgrímsson expanding his classical background with elements from electronica, choral traditions, and film music. The result is a stunning blend of lush strings, distorted beats, intimate piano & the composer’s own sublime voice.

The album features strings performed by the Budapest Art Orchestra and engineering/mixing by Addi 800 (Björk, Sigur Ros).
