Release Date:07/08/2008;Notes:This is the debut release by Iceland's Ólafur Arnold's and the first North American release for the London-based cinematic music label Erased Tapes Records. Arnold's has immersed himself completely in the world of delicate symphonic composition in a near-weightless orchestral undertaking. Mixing strings with loops, ambience, electronics and beats, Arnold's combines classical instrumentation with an indie-rock aesthetic that draws comparison to Sigur Rós. Eulogy for Evolution is an evocative, orchestral suite that takes the listener on a journey, representing different periods of life from birth to death through slow-building and hauntingly melodic chamber music. It comes with a free download voucher for the 11-track Erased Tapes Collection I compilation to celebrate the label's 1st anniversary. Ólafur Arnold's and his live string quartet performed at unique venues in the UK, including the oldest custom-built concert hall in Europe, the Holywell Music Room in Oxford, before they continued playing mostly sold-out shows throughout the rest of Europe. Over 500 people came to see Ólafur at the State-X Newforms Festival in Den Haag alongside Aphex Twin, as well as at Iceland Airwaves with Amiina and Jóhann Jóhannsson in Brussels. He is already working on his second full-length record and a string arrangement for Erased Tapes friends, 65daysofstatic.;Track List:1. 00:40;2. 00:48/07:29;3. 09:52;4. 14:40;5. 19:53;6. 30:55;7. 33:26;8. 37:04/38:37;Special Attributes:GATEFOLD LP JACKET, WITH BOOKLET, DIGITAL DOWNLOAD CARD
