Academy Award-nominated composer and pianist Dustin O’Halloran presents his debut album Silfur on DG – released on CD, vinyl and digital formats.
Silfur explores the shifting perspective of music through time and place in new tracks and reimagined earlier works. O’Halloran divides his time between Reykjavík and LA. Unable to return to California because of the lockdown, he spent the imposed time of isolation in a state of introspection and stillness, writing new material and revisiting works from four solo albums and refining them with a renewed sense of self.
Complementing the release is a music video for Constellation No. 2 for piano, cello and electronics, co-written by Gyða Valtýsdóttir. The video is shot by Anna Maggý at the Steinasafn Auðuns stone collection in Djúpivogur, near Iceland’s eastern fjords.
