MICHAEL PETER OLSEN – “MAYDAY”

Working with visual artist Trudy Elmore for the captivating video depicting a line of individuals ascending together – only to break apart at the apotheosis of their ascent. Michael Peter Olsen’ stirring ambient-cello led composition contemplates loss and rebirth – an ascendance through sadness while succumbing to the inevitable truth – we all die alone.  The Toronto-based cello has lent his collaboration to everyone from Drake to the Arcade Fire. This is his first solo arrangement and it is stunning.
