Olafur Arnalds 'Eulogy For Evolution 2017' LP
Following its initial release in 2007 and coinciding with Olafur’s 30th birthday, label founder Robert Raths gifted the chance for this record to shine a second time. Eulogy For Evolution is a journey from birth to death, transporting the listener through life itself. Originally written as a teenager, the record has now been restored with the help of his friends, remixed by Olafur himself and remastered by Nils Frahm. The cover art was redesigned and enhanced by Torsten Posselt at Feld using the original photographs taken by Stuart Bailes during a trip to Olafur’s home in Iceland in 2007. To experience the record in the present day is not only to experience the past, but also the sheer timelessness and relevance of these compositions, and the ambition Olafur has had from the very beginning. “Fast forward 10 years, our relationships and knowledge in sound have matured, but you can still hear this urgency in Óli’s songs that caught my ears to begin with”, states Robert Raths.
