about

This recording takes you on a round trip of Iceland. The aural journey starts westward from the island’s south in the cold, early spring. After a side trip into the West Fjords, our route traverses the north of the country at the height of summer, followed by an excursion into the interior highlands before a short stop in the East Fjords. As the sound trip nears its geographical starting point, autumn and winter make their appearance before the journey comes full circle.

The recordings do not feature any human-derived sounds.
