Eulogy for Evolution is Icelandic producer Ólafur Arnalds' first studio album, released on 1 October 2007 by Erased Tapes Records. With the album, Arnalds set out to document the journey of life, from birth to death. The album was reissued and remastered for its tenth anniversary on 25 August 2017. The reissue, entitled Eulogy for Evolution 2017, was remastered by Nils Frahm and features new cover artwork and an expanded booklet featuring new photography. All tracks written by Ólafur Arnalds.

Following its initial release in 2007 and coinciding with Ólafur’s 30th birthday, label founder Robert Raths gifted the chance for this record to shine a second time. Eulogy For Evolution is a journey from birth to death, transporting the listener through life itself. Originally written as a teenager, the record has now been restored with the help of his friends, remixed by Ólafur.

Cardboard sleeve includes 24-page booklet with photos and liner notes by Ólafur Arnalds and Stuart Bailes. Matrix, Runout: ERATP101CD D71120. Mastering SID Code: IFPI LD02. Mould SID Code: IFPI 5J82.

lafur’s plan is to take the ideas of classical music and set it to the modern structures of post-rock and indie ballads. He and his troupe, consisting of a violist, two violinists, a cellist, and himself on the piano, released Eulogy for Evolution in late October, 2007. Arnalds managed to accomplish his goals and plenty more in this nearly flawless debut release. Given the choice of instrumentation, it isn’t going to take much work for Arnalds to take hold of your heart strings. The opening notes of 0040 float in, effortlessly causing chills to run up the spine. Perhaps the most memorable highlights of Eulogy for Evolution are the two climax points. The first of these appears in Track 6 (. Once the melody is established, the music is joined by a tom-laden drum track which gives the music a fresh new appeal. The second does not appear until the last track.

The music is just sooooo fragile, delicate, quiet, and pretty, it shouldn't be talked about with overly strong images. Eulogy for Evolution is a continuous instrumental suite for piano and string quartet, with occasional extra instruments. Conceived as programmatic music, the suite depicts life from birth to death - a large topic, one on which several composers have broken teeth.

lafur Arnalds' stunning debut Eulogy for Evolution, still his masterpiece, remains a gorgeous and disquieting vision of human life. The bewildering sleeve art to Eulogy for Evolution, the 2007 debut LP of the Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds, poses numerous mysteries. An image of a field, with a mountain in the background, lays haphazardly affixed to what looks like a hastily assembled collage of denim, painter's tape, and coffee-stained paper
