Michael Peter Olsen is a classically trained cellist, composer, producer and Grammy Nominated songwriter, who has collaborated on albums from Drake, Arcade Fire, Haim, Hidden Cameras, K-OS, to name a few.

“Mayday”, along with Michael Peter Olsen’s upcoming full-length album will showcase electric cello in ambient, avant-garde influenced compositions and take the listener through a sound world of electronically altered and acoustic performance. Inspired by a combination of acoustic and pure synthetic sounds, meditations on late 19th century impressionist harmony, and film scoring, the album will build a bridge between new classical and pop music communities.

Collaborating with celebrated fine artist Trudy Elmore for the video, the imagery of “Mayday” becomes an apotheosis of renaissance inspired beauty. The result is a dense meditation on the temporality of our existence, and the sorrowful victory of death.
