Thanks for posting it. It's a beautiful recording of beautiful music–completely ruined by the person breathing loudly into the mic. I can't bear that noise.

As the person who made this recording, I can assure you I wasn't breathing into my mics; nor was Ólafur breathing into his.

Possibly, you're hearing the sound of the air vents above the stage. Those did, indeed, make quite a racket.

Nevertheless, I think it's a fantastic recording -- even if I do say so myself -- and there's not much live Óli out there.
