Spitfire Audio has announced Ólafur Arnalds Evolutions, a sample library featuring haunting frozen strings by BAFTA-winning composer, multi-instrumentalist and electronic artist Ólafur Arnalds.

A truly original and inspiring set of tools, conceived in Reykjavík, Iceland, recorded in Berlin, Germany and realised in London, England that draws on the talents on some true independent thinkers who are shining a new light on classical European instruments, how to play them, use them, abuse them and record and process them with a totally fresh approach.

Recorded in the ultra cool surrounds of Voxton studios Berlin, Ólafur’s hand picked quartet features the talents of multi instrumentalist, composer, and oft co-collaborator Viktor Orri Árnason alongside the searing talents of cellist Sebastian Selke.

Each evolution was exhaustingly curated and produced by Ólafur Arnalds who also prescribed his strict and original approach to how Voxton’s very cool selection of microphones, pre-amps and outboard should best be utilised for this project.

The net result is a deeply beautiful, if not haunting selection of tools that spring out of the box with delightful and refreshing unpredictability. If you’re looking for something cerebral, honest and unique then you’ll need go no further.

Ólafur Arnalds Evolutions is available for the introductory price of £149 GBP until December 4th, 2015 (RRP £199 GBP).

Spitfire Audio has also announced its upcoming Black Cyber Sale, an opportunity to buy individual instruments and bundles at a discount.
