Following an accident, musician lafur Arnalds suffered nerve damage that left him unable to play the piano. Thats when he discovered the power technology granted him in innovating on the classical form. He got to work with a programmer to create a software called Stratus that controls self-playing, semi-generative pianos. Its all supported by some complex mathematics and a wildly creative vision. While lafur plays an electronic keyboard onstage, the two upright ghost pianos accompany him, creating a cascade of complementary notes. Its an incredible system that fuses the physicality of classical music with the ingenuity of electronic music.

In this episode of SOUNDWAVE, lafur delves into the creation of his Stratus software and walks us through how he composed the song unfold from his latest album re:member.
