《梭伦群岛》是23岁的冰岛作曲家加布里埃尔·拉夫在美国德卡唱片公司的处女作。这是一张雄心勃勃的概念专辑,向冰岛人民的艺术精神致敬。这是一部个人发现的作品,也是对艺术、文化和地方的探索,这些都塑造了加布里埃尔的身份。
该唱片的灵感来源于冰岛伟大诗人之一达维德·斯特芬森的作品,他在钢琴、合奏和合唱中用口语元素创作了富有表现力和情感的作品。PopMatters写道,它“充满了美丽。”
作为一个雄心勃勃的概念专辑和跨媒体项目,向冰岛人民的艺术精神致敬,Ólafs的主要品牌首次亮相是一个个人发现的作品,一个对艺术、文化和地方的探索,形成了加布里埃尔的身份。该唱片的灵感来源于冰岛伟大诗人之一达夫·斯蒂芬森的作品,他为钢琴、合奏和合唱团创作了带有口语元素的旋律作品。
Ólafs小时候就被他的父亲和祖父读过Stefánsson的诗,他特别喜欢上了他最早的诗集《黑羽毛》(Svartar Fjaðrir),这本诗集出版于一百年前,当时诗人与Ólafs同龄,当时他正在制作新专辑。在录音时,Ólafs会阅读这些诗,并试图在旋律中捕捉它们的精髓。
《梭伦岛》的标题来自斯特芬森唯一的一部小说,讲述了一个真实的冰岛漂泊者sölvi Helgason的悲剧故事。作为一位长期热爱电影的作曲家,Ólafs以“导演”的视角创作作品,创造主题和主题来表现人物和情感。Ólafs说:“像《流浪者》和《朱丽安娜》这样的歌曲灵感来自小说中的人物。”。“这就像是一部电影,这就是他们的主题。”
虽然受到一种特别安静和微妙的冰岛声音接近最低限度的影响,但Ólafs尤其被旋律所吸引。“柴可夫斯基、莫里科尼、约翰·威廉姆斯,他们都能写出一首好旋律。没有什么能与之相比。”在钢琴前,Ólafs总是从旋律开始,用手机上的语音备忘录记录结果。“我大概有200个,”Ólafs说。对于梭伦岛,他尽量简化他的旋律。他解释说:“我想把这些诗配起来,它们直截了当,直达内心。”。
加布里埃尔·拉夫斯(GabríelÓlafs)写这首歌时只有14岁,这首歌为他赢得了第一笔唱片交易,五年后,他的第一张专辑《心不在焉》(About Mind)在一家独立唱片公司发行。自那以后,他的歌曲在网上被流了数千万次;PopMatters写道,他的音乐“充满了美。”

“Solon Islandus” is the Decca Records US debut of 23-year-old Icelandic composer Gabríel Ólafs. It is an ambitious concept album that pays homage to the artistic spirit of the people of Iceland. A work of personal discovery, and an exploration of the artistry, culture and place that has shaped Gabríel’s identity.
The record draws inspiration from the writing of one of Iceland’s great poets, Davíd Stefánsson, in expressive and emotional works for piano, ensemble and choir with spoken word elements.It is, writes PopMatters, “brimming with beauty.”
An ambitious concept album and transmedia project that pays homage to the artistic spirit of the people of Iceland, Ólafs’ major label debut is a work of personal discovery—an exploration of the artistry, culture and place that has shaped Gabríel’s identity. The record draws inspiration from the writing of one of Iceland’s great poets, Davíð Stefánsson, in melodic works for piano, ensemble and choir with spoken word elements.
Ólafs was read Stefánsson’s poems as a child by both his father and grandfather, and he especially fell in love with his earliest poetry collection, Black Feathers (Svartar Fjaðrir), published one hundred years earlier when the poet was the same age as Ólafs when he was making the new album. While recording, Ólafs would read the poems and try to capture their essence in melody.
The title Solon Islandus comes from Stefánsson’s only novel, the tragic tale of a real-life Icelandic drifter, Sölvi Helgason. A composer with a longstanding love of film, Ólafs takes a “directorial” view of composition—creating motifs and themes to represent characters and emotions. “Tracks like ‘The Drifter’ and ‘Júlíana’ are inspired by characters from the novel,” says Ólafs. “It’s almost as if this was a movie, and these are their themes.”
While influenced by a particular quiet and delicate Icelandic sound verging on minimalist, Ólafs is especially drawn to melodies. “Tchaikovsky, Morricone, John Williams, they can all write a good melody. Nothing really compares.” Working at his piano, Ólafs always begins with melodies, recording the results with voice memos on his phone. “I have maybe 200 of them,” Ólafs notes. For Solon Islandus, he tried to simplify his melodies as much as possible. “I wanted to match the poems, which are straight to the point, straight to the heart,” he explains.
Gabríel Ólafs was only 14 when he wrote the song that landed him his first record deal, which saw his first album, Absent Minded, released on an independent label five years later. His tracks have since been streamed tens of millions of times online; his music is, writes PopMatters, “brimming with beauty.”
