Kiasmos


After dropping several tracks and performing at select festivals throughout the years A#lafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen dedicated the year 2014 to explore the area inbetween A#lafur's more acoustic pianobased solo work and Janus's synthheavy electro pop with their collaborative electronic project Kiasmos By focusing solely on their selftitled debut album A#lafur and Janus have been able to combine and further develop their unique sound aesthetics to complete an album driven by their mutual love for electronic music Made in A#lafur's newly build studio in ReykjavA#k Iceland a majority of the album was recorded using acoustic instruments next to a variety of synthesisers drum machines and tape delays It features a live drummer string quartet and A#lafur performing on the grand piano producing an ambient textured sound which makes it a perfect home listen and equally danceable record If you listen closely you can spot them record the thumb piano finger snapping and even the sound of the metal grinder of a lighter slowly to replace the usual electronic hihat sounds giving the album a far more intimate and unique atmosphere
