Chillax Tracks : Olafur Arnalds - Gleypa Okkur ( Live at Bridgewater Hall )

The abysmal state of beauty 

Ólafur Arnalds -- Gleypa okkur (Live with full orchestra at Bridgewater Hall) by Drugs and Mirrors

Olafur Arnalds - Gleypa Okkaur's, in a word, ineffable.  A song beyond beauty and so moving it transcends contemporary vocabulary. This is a perfect example of how; something so simple as a piano melody accompanied by a string symphony can stir the body creating so many emotions, how the basic plucking of strings and vibrational patterns than bring a man to tears. To simply state it, Olafur is a genius, in his ability to evoke human emotion.
