To my knowledge, there isn't a recording of Aion yet. Hopefully, there will be soon, though.
I wonder whether or not one of the orchestra's that she has performed this with might have it on their website?  The little bit that I saw of the combo dance version would be fascinating to watch too.   :)

I have no idea, but there's so much other music of hers that is released that this is my only focus when talking about Thorvaldsdottir. :)

Anna S. Þorvaldsdóttir is an Icelandic composer with atmospheric compositions, and her music is seeming to become more well known.

I had the great fortune of hearing her work, Metacosmos (2017) live performed at the 2019 Winnipeg New Music Festival, and it left a really great impression.

PD,

Do listen to Metacosmos, Aerialty and In The Light of Air. I think you would like those and these should be available on YouTube.

I will try to sample the ones you just mentioned.
Just listened to a concert recording of Metacosmos with Salonen in San Francisco....wow!  Loved it!  I hope that they make this live recording available on CD or download.
