The award-winning American pianist and composer Dustin O'Halloran, Emmy winner and already nominated for BAFTA, Golden Globe and Oscar, is one of the most successful composers of the film music landscape of our time. (Lion, Transparent, The Old Guard, Marie Antoinette and many others) In addition, he has been successful worldwide for years together with Adam Wiltzie and the mutual ambient duo A Winged Victory for the Sullen.
SILFUR is inspired by the relationship between music and time. Dustin O'Halloran undertook an exciting musical journey into the past and recorded a delightful selection of his early piano solo pieces, some of which are also provided with new soulful string arrangements, in special places in Iceland with which he is close feels connected. For example in the old wooden Fríkirkjan Church in Reykjavík. Here he played his first Icelandic concert with Jóhann Jóhannsson and Hauschka when he visited the country for the first time. This closes the circle of time. He also adds two completely new compositions to his unmistakable, emotional piano pieces of timeless atmospheric beauty.
