Where to start?... I've been fortunate to see hundreds of artists perform live, including having previously seen Ólafur before, however last night was something else.
For me... music is all about emotion, and this performance was one of those rare emotional journeys facilitated through art. I experienced hairs standing up, tears, laughter & smiles all in the one show. My heartfelt thanks to all the performers, and to Ólafur for writing music that has been a big part of my life this past decade.
Having recently lost a Grandparent myself, the closing of the show with the tribute to your Grandmother was really special... and the way the audience stayed silent at the end as a mark of respect was touching. I've never seen a show end like that before... an unforgettable experience.
Lastly... thanks to Ólafur for sharing his creative process so openly. I've been fortunate to have some fun exchanges with him during his occasional live streams from his studio. It's fantastic to have that kind of access... to be able to ask questions about his workflow etc. It's been very helpful for my own process.
Come back soon, travel safe, and take care...
