Ólafur Arnalds - Found Songs (2009)

For those of you who read the note at the bottom of the Eulogy for Evolution post, you know what this is about. Ólafur Arnalds has composed, recorded, and released a new song every day for the last week. They are available for download free on the Found Songs website and on Last.fm, but I have compiled them here for you to download.

Though the songs are new, he uses bits and pieces of old ideas or notes that he never got to use, hence the name Found Songs. He also made a flickr group to get fans involved, where people would post photos or art inspired by the songs, so he might be inspired by their work.
The songs are mostly brief, focusing on piano with some strings accompanying him on a few songs. Since these are meant to be individual songs, not a full album, they don't neccessarily flow or fit together, but they are all good.
