Úlfur Eldjárn is known for an unusual and experimental approach to his music, and his career spans everything from pop, electronic music and jazz, to classical and avant-garde music.
He’s worked with some of Iceland’s most eclectic bands, such as the teen pop band Kósý, Funkstrasse, Kvartett Ó. Jónsson & Grjóni and Trabant. He’s probably best known as a member of legendary synth cult Apparat Organ Quartet.
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.

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.
