[chuck] in Art, Slowly comes the light, and they have escaped the weight of darkness

Still another lovely musical offering from Iceland (see Heima). Ólafur Arnalds is a young composer who blends piano and strings into tasteful loops that evoke classical, pop, ambient- and a lot of other things. I really like his music. The video was made for the song "Haegt, kemur ljósiỗa" from his lovely new album, ...and they have escaped the weight of darkness.
[NOTE: Haegt, kemur ljósiỗ, I'm told, translates as "slowly, comes the light"].
