The first song of Ólafur Arnalds “Living Room Songs”.
The song is called “Fyrsta”, which means “First”. Because it is the first song of the series, but also because this piano theme was the first thing i managed to write while temporarily living in Los Angeles after weeks of severe creative block while trying to adjust to a new and strange place.
Violins: Gréta Salóme Stefánsdóttir and Margrét Soffía Einarsdóttir
Viola: Roland Hartwell
Cello: Unnur Jónsdóttir
Music video for OR, taken from Kangding Ray’s latest album.
just downloaded and inhaled deeply. leaves me speechless.
with thanks to dear DorianFuk
like the surf biting the shore,
again and again,
and the woman opens her mouth with pleasure
and her teeth gleam
like the alphabet,
Logos appears milking a star,
and the man
inside of woman
ties a knot
so that they will
never again be separate…
