The young Icelandic composer Daniel Bjarnason has worked with Sigur Ros, Amina, and other Icelandic rock and non-classical acts.  For this New Sounds program, he’ll unveil a new work at our piano and present some of his electronically-enhanced chamber music on his album "Processions."  Its careful and beautiful chaos veers from shred-classical to the lyrical and then the clangorous.

Bjarnason is also the co-founder and chief conductor of the Isafold Chamber Orchestra.  We'll hear their recording of "Fratres," and more.
