The idea of mixing classic with electronic music seems to be ‘en vogue’ again. Recently we witnessed the joint venture of BOYS NOIZE and CHILLY GONZALES in form of their project OCTAVE MINDS. Today comes another highlight from this genre clash. Acclaimed neo-classic composer ÓLAFUR ARNALDS and electronic producer Janus Rasmussen (from the band BLOODGROUP) join forces as KIASMOS.

It’s not an entirely new collaboration since the two musicians have been working together on an irregular basis during the past seven years. But now they take the idea of KIASMOS one step further and release their self-titled debut album on October 27 via Erased Tapes. And judging from the first track Burnt we can expect an eclectic clash of their musical microcosms. Listen to the hypnotic piece right here.
