Ólafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen have dedicated themselves to exploring the area in-between Ólafur’s more acoustic, piano-based solo work and Janus’s synth-heavy electro pop, with their collaborative electronic project Kiasmos.
Their self-titled debut album was released in 2014 on Erased Tapes to much acclaim. Made in Ólafur’s newly build studio in Reykjavík, Iceland, a majority of the album was recorded using acoustic instruments such as a drummer and live string quartet, next to a variety of synthesisers, drum machines and tape delays. With Ólafur performing on the grand piano and Janus creating detailed beats, glitches and off-field electronics.
November 2015 saw the release of Swept EP wherein the guys experiment with live percussion and synthesisers in a studio in Berlin. It features 3 new tracks and a remix by Tale of Us.
