Inspiring chamber strings textures

We join forces with BAFTA-winning Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds (Broadchurch, Kiasmos, Erased Tapes) to record an all-star ensemble performing his latest set of awe-inspiring evolutions. The 4,3,3,3,3 ensemble of British players (Violin I + II, Viola, Cello, Double Bass), led by long-term collaborator Viktor Orri Árnason, perform a range of fragile yet warm beautifully evolving phrases, recorded at the world famous Hall at AIR Studios, London.

Using our Evo Grid technology, this library makes it easy to create sophisticated chamber strings music from the most simplistic of arrangements – just a few sustained notes is all you need to write inspiring dynamic textures. We also introduce Waves: a brand new innovation featuring notes that move along a wave-like dynamic arc, appearing from nothing, swelling, and then dying away again to nothing. These are accessible via our classic interface, in various styles and lengths.

Chamber ensemble

Following the release of Symphonic Strings Evolutions, we were keen to explore what was possible with a chamber ensemble. We recruited Ólafur Arnalds as a collaborator, and the results are truly exceptional. Capturing the detail of individual players, the library has a greater intimacy than its symphonic sibling, yet with enough power to hold its own in scores and compositions.

As with his first Evolutions product, Ólafur worked closely with long-time collaborator and violinist, Viktor Orri Árnason, who led an ensemble made up of 16 of the best British players.

The Hall

As with many Spitfire libraries, we returned to the iconic Hall at AIR Studios. Scores such as DunkirkBeauty and the BeastWonder Woman and Paddington 2 were recorded there recently, as well as classics such as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s StoneThe Dark Knight and Gladiator. We captured the ensemble with several mics and mixes: Close, Stereo Pair, Tree and Ambient, enlisting only the best classic high-end microphones – all fed through the one-of-a-kind Neve console to Pro Tools and ¼” tape.

This library features two new Evolution innovations courtesy of Ólafur

Feathering

  • Only half of the players performing at any one time. This allows you to play different chords and still hear the detail of the players.

Waves

  • One of Ólafur’s signature sounds are crescendo-diminuendos, so in order to save manually drawing these in or using a fader, a range of pre-recorded “Waves” have been recorded for instant satisfaction.
