Icelandic composers Atli Örvasson and Ólafur Arnalds have teamed up to collaborate on a new work titled ‘Akureyi’ on the compilation album titled Island Songs – a collection of compositions inspired by 7 different regions of Iceland. Barely 100km south of the arctic circle, the city of Akureyri nestles into Eyjafjörður. Snow capped mountains shelter the city from the harsh winds, where forest and botanical gardens flourish. This is the place composer Atli returned to, after many years in Hollywood writing film scores. Watch Öldurót here.
