Ólafur Arnalds presents the soundtrack to the unique new live performance film, When We Are Born. ‘When We Are Born' tells a thoroughly human story, based in part on Ólafur's life. Filmed on location in Iceland in summer 2020 and directed by visionary filmmaker Vincent Moon. It features the contributions of an unparalleled creative, innovative choreographer Erna Ómarsdóttir, the Iceland Dance Company and cinematographer Thor Eliasson. ‘When We Are Born’ explores the themes of rituals, relationships and our inner landscape through music from Ólafur's recent album, 'some kind of peace', all performed and recorded live on set. Like the album, the journey through the surreal world of ‘When We Are Born’ is ultimately focused on how we all move forward — a theme made especially potent in the times of disconnect and isolation it emerged from.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
