8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 04 December 2009'Dyad 1909' is the new release from Icelandic composer Olafar Arnalds which is a contemporary dance score commissioned by British choreographer Wayne McGregor, inspired by Sergei Pavlovich Diaghilev. Olafar Arnalds work is unique in so much as he is able to bridge the two worlds of classical composition and contemporary electronica with relative ease, creating a cinematic style of composition that is both emotive and groundbreaking. 'Dyad 1909' is a particularly dramatic collection, especially the first two tracks which feature some damn heavy digital drum. It eases of a little as the record develops with piano and strings taking centre stage with only occasional electronic flutters providing the ambient background noise. This is true classical composition that seeks to attract a new audience of non classical listeners, which in mind eyes is a very commendable thing....nice one Mr. Arnalds.
