All Saints Church
Wednesday 4th December 2013
Icelandic composer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist and former metal drummer is playing at the beautiful All Saints Church in Hove this December in what is sure to be a night of atmospheric magic and wonder.
With a musical resumé that includes writing music for feature films, a ballet and the ITV series Broadchurch, several tours throughout the world, a record deal with Universal Music’s label Mercury Classics and a global following of over a hundred thousand people, it is fair to say that this 27-year old has done rather well for himself.
Combining sweeping strings and delicate piano melodies with samples pads and drum beats, his unique blend of pop/electronica/chill out/ambient/classical music, he soothes the soul, lowers the heart rate and highlights the beauty that can be found amongst the busy life in the 21st Century.
If you are a fan of Ludovico Einaudi, Sigur Rós, Michael Nyman or any film composer to that effect, this is a concert that you will not want to miss!
‘For Now I Am Winter’ is available now on Mercury Classics.
