Icelandic neo-classical composer Ólafur Arnalds teams up with Bloodgroup mastermind Janus Rasmussen for a new project – Kiasmos. Having released their first tracks ‘65’ and ‘Walled’ in form of a split 12" with label mate Rival Consoles in 2009, 2012 shall finally see the duo return with their long-awaited debut album. In the earlier days when Arnalds used to work as a sound engineer - often for Rasmussen's main project Bloodgroup - the two musicians discovered their common love for minimal, experimental techno music. At first they only met on weekends for a few drinks and used the time to create experimental sounds with beats various samples. But they eventually became best friends, and now Janus often accompanies Ólafur's solo shows with his electronics. Rasmussen, who has more experience with electronic music, usually crafts the beginning of the songs. As both have touring commitments, Rasmussen sends the first beats via email. With Arnalds’ good ear for pure and timeless melodies, he is then responsible for the overall song structure and the fine-tuning. ‘I am really enthusiastic about this project. Finally, I can make music that the people can dance to’, explains Arnalds in an interview with the German electronic music magazine Beat. The project is still a weekend project, an excuse for both boys to ‘get out of the house’ so to speak and do different music to what they normally do. Something refreshing for the weekends…
