Daníel Bjarnason - Collider
Collider is the third studio album released by Daníel Bjarnason on Bedroom Community. The album includes Bjarnason’s orchestral works Blow Bright, The Isle is Full of Noises, and Collider and features Bjarnason as both composer and conductor. Collider was recorded by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the Hamrahlid Choir at the landmark Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik, Iceland while Bjarnason was Artist-in-Residence with the Orchestra in 2015 and 2016.
With the full symphony orchestra as his canvas, Bjarnason explores a new array of timbres and textures while maintaining the molten core of tense anxiety that has fueled his previous output. In his fourth Bedroom Community release, the composer builds on his work with traditional mediums – as orchestral conductor and classical composer – while channeling his recent collaborations with rock musicians and explorations of the recording studio.
