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, etc.) In addition, he has been successful worldwide for years together with Adam Wiltzie and the joint ambient duo A Winged Victory for the Sullen.

SILFUR is inspired by the relationship between music and time. For this, Dustin O’Halloran took an exciting musical journey into the past and recorded a delightful selection of his early piano solo compositions, some of which also feature new soulful string arrangements, again in special places in Iceland with which he feels closely connected. For example, in the old wooden Fríkirkjan Church in Reykjavík. It was here that he once played his first Icelandic concert together with Jóhann Jóhannsson and Hauschka when he first visited the country. Thus, time has come full circle. He also adds two entirely new compositions to his distinctive emotional piano pieces of timeless atmospheric beauty.

“As a composer,” says Dustin O’Halloran, “we hold time: that’s what music does. But time is fluid; it doesn’t preserve music. It is re-experienced and transforms. I experience time in a different way: I connect with my younger self, but now-in the present-and through that I bring something to the music.”

The title of the album – SILFUR – is chosen after the Icelandic native Silfurberg crystal – translated as silver rock. Whose unique property is to refract light twice – objects appear doubled. “It does to light exactly what I feel it does to time. It splits it in two, but in the same moment: present and past.”

For SILFUR, Durstin O’Halloran was supported on his musical expedition by sound engineer and sound wizard Francesco Donadello (collaborations with Ludovico Einaudi, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Nils Frahm, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Ólafur Arnalds and many others) and Bergur Þórisson, musical director of Björk and part of the duo Hugar. Together they created a captivating album that takes Dustin O’Halloran’s evocative music to a level that can stand the test of time.
