Úlfur has also written music extensively for theatre, TV and films, among them a recent soundtrack for the internationally acclaimed film Innsaei: The Sea Within
. As a solo artist, he’s gone down some unusual and experimental paths: His record Yfirvofandi was recorded after hours in an exotic music store, on Field Recordings: Music from the Ether
he used some unorthodox instruments, such as a robotic drummer, radio signals and a medieval symphonie, and The Infinite String Quartet is an interactive composition where the listener creates his or her own version of the music (try it out on infinitestringquartet.com)
Recently Úlfur released an album titled The Aristokrasia Project
, where he fuses analog synths with the sound of live strings and percussion. It’s a concept record about space travel, utopian visions, the history of science and love in the time of artificial intelligence.
