Ólafur Arnalds’ Music Video for ‘Ljósið’ by

If you haven’t seen this video, stop everything you’re doing and watch. If your boss yells at you to start working, tell them to shut up and watch too. The music video was directed by Esteban Diåcono for Ólafur Arnalds’ song, Ljósið. It’s a nice piano piece, which is pretty and all, but the video is the real gem here. Esteban had originally created this video as his own project, using Ólafur’s song as the background music. But once Ólafur actually saw it he decided to make it the official video for his song.

I’m pretty sure that this video was created without the use of computers, only really powerful black magic that only true wizards possess… okay, but seriously, this is amazing! I love that each instrument has it’s own shape and color, and the way it all moves is simply magical.
