  1. I found this album in Delta plan flighing in the sky . really amazing. Don't know the language but it feel so peaceful hearing it. Thank you

  2. Why are we framing our perception of the world in the words? Olafur made a beautiful transition to the world of music and this what we will remember.
    We made out of different sounds maybe but we unite under melody.

  3. Parabéns Ólafur sou do Brasil, gosto muito de ouvir suas músicas, parabéns pelas composições pelo profissionalismo, admiro você, essa é a música que mais gosto um grande abraço….

  4. Just perfect!!!! Tyou Olafur.
    "Here I am, floating in emerald sea. Keep me dense, Keep me as still as can be. And I try to keep the balance right. And I try but it feels like wasting time. But this heavy hate, there pulling me down on my chest. Letting it on, colouring all of my face.

    Quietly, you hover over me.

    And I fight, but it feels like wasting time; Feels like wasting time. Say goodnight, I know that I am swallowed in sea. We collide, colors that devour me. Just say goodnight, I'm already down.

    And I cry Already down Already down And I cry Already down And I try And I try but it feels like wasting…"

  5. I saw Ólafur and his exceptional co-musicians 4 days ago in Athens. Árbakkinn was the first piece played that night. I’m still shivering by the thought of that day. I felt blessed and lucky for being a part of this experience in a way that I cannot even describe through words. I was in tears during the whole concert from the profundity of Ólafur’s music and the purity and kindness Ólafur himself was sending out, creating that highly-charged atmosphere. I’m still into this ‘emotional bubble’, having the feeling that something that day made me a different person.
    I have nothing less to say than
    thank you, Ólafur,
    deeply.

    φωτεινή

  6. Emotionally perplexing.
    Scientists discuss what humanity needs to present when we encounter aliens for the time.
    It's right here.
    The essence of who we are -Humanity.

  7. É uma sensação mista de sentimentos que tenho ao ouvir. A melodia junta da poesia, uma melancolia necessária.
    Ólafur, obrigado por sua delicadeza ao compor suas melodias.

  8. I found this song on Spotify almost 2-3 years ago, but since Spotify isn't supported in our country and they banned all these vpn using accounts, i forgot the artist and song name. I was thinking about this song just last week and i couldn't remember the name. I'm so glad I found t again.

  9. Берег реки

    В синем сне она пребывает одна
    резво играет на струнах и утёсах
    и задорно плещет на серый камень

    в глубях и тихих заводях медленно движется
    со скромным обаянием шумит река
    вечно перерождающаяся и удивительная

    она творит то искусство, которое всего прекраснее
    дека сотворена из древнего пламени
    Я слышу звук в моём сердце

    Я слышу звук в моём сердце

    Эйнар Георг Эйнарссон

  10. This one was a hard one to listen to live. Lots of tear wiping going on around me. Thanks for an amazing night.

  11. This is REAL MAGIC and dreams come through (compare to trash we are forced to listen to by media).Thank you Mr. Arnalds for your magical creativities and of course to the uploader for this beauty.

  12. EL RÍO EN LA LAVA

    En un sueño azul, ella se regocija sin compañía
    Alegremente juega con las corrientes y las caídas
    Bromea, y sobre una piedra gris el agua esparcía

    En un estanque profundo y silencioso
    Se posa con un encanto decoroso
    El río murmura constantemente y renace con asombro

    Ella realiza el arte más bello
    De un antiguo sonido hecho de fuego

    Escucho el sonido en mi corazón

    Escucho el sonido en mi corazón

  13. Alguien que sea tan amble de traducir lo que dice..Le estaré profundamente agradecido.
    Muchísimas gracias

  14. This song brings tears to my eyes….. Olafur, I love you from the bottom of my heart. Your songs ….

  15. I was at a pre-screening of the movie Island Songs last November in London and after we watched it, Ólafur told us that it's not necessary to translate the poem but only listening to the words of Einar Georg is music within the music. Everybody can enjoy the sound of words in his music without necessarily understanding it but it transcends beyond the actual meaning. Very profound yet simple. Takk fyrir, Ólafur!

  16. Here I am, floating in emerald sea.
    Keep me dense,
    Keep me as still as can be.
    And I try to keep the balance right.
    And I try but it feels like wasting time.

    But this heavy hate, there pulling me down on my chest.
    Letting it on, colouring all of my face.
    Quietly, you hover over me.
    And I fight, but it feels like wasting time;
    Feels like wasting time.
    Say goodnight,
    I know that I am swallowed in sea.
    We collide, colors that devour me.
    Just say goodnight, I'm already down.

    And I cry
    Already down
    Already down
    And I cry
    Already down
    And I try
    And I try but it feels like wasting…

  17. I heard this album on, of all places, Delta Airlines in-flight entertainment. I listened to it five times in a row. Amazing. Beautiful. So happy to have discovered this artist.
