In English

A lot of discussions has ben going on about how long materials will last on Cd-disks.

Some time ago I tried to copy a 10 years old cd with a concert given by a group of 6 musicians of The Traditional Music Ensemble of The Beijing Film Studio who gave a concert in Iceland in 2002. It was damaged.

Today I decided to try again. I found out that the piece of paper, containing som information about the contents, was a little uneven. After fixing this the disk could be copied. Maybe a new diskdrive made it also possible.

The musicians played 2 Icelandic melodies: I looked for blue flowers by Gylfi . Gslason and The Westman Islands by Arnthor Helgason

St. Barbara is the saind of travellers. In a small chapel, on the way to Keflavik airport, an old poet about Barbara was chanted by Bra Grmsdttir, a known composer and specialist on Icelandic Folk music. Members of Kvamannaflagi Iunn chanted with her in the refrain.

In English

This recording is best enjoyed by using headphones.

The annual Reykjavik Run was held on August 23. More than 1100 people participated in Marathon and Half-Marathon and over 8.000 in 10 km running. The event was recorded as has been done since 1998.

The first sample started around 09:05 when the first runners had arrived. Due to the noise from cars the recording before is not worth listening.

The second sample started around 10:00 when the first runners were approaching. Pay attention to how people tried to disturb the runners by driving, biking and walking against the stream.

The runners pass by like a river of people.

Recorded in an MS-Setup with Rde Nt-2A and NT-55. The recorder is as most often Nagra Ares BB+.

Recorded infront of Tjarnarbl 14 at Nesvegur, Seltjarnarnes.

This is the last recording from our trip to Northwest Iceland this summer.

In the morning of July 14, around 7 there was a little rain at Kirkjubl in Steingrmsfjrur, Northwest-Iceland. The drops can be heard on the roof of the guesthouse some 12 m away from the mics.

Many birds entertained us. Just to name some of them: golden plower, ringd plower, arctic tern, whimbrel, snipe, redwing, redshang and some more. A sheep was also heard.

There are some other birds which are not counted. It would be interesting if listeners would try to recognize them.

Recorded with 2 Sennheiser ME-62 on a Nagra Ares BB+.

In english


Will the wind finally do some good?

In December, Landsvirkjun erected two wind turbines, in an area known as Hafi, within the construction area of Brfell Power Station, in the south of Iceland. The turbines have a total of 2 MW of installed power. The project is part of Landsvirkjuns research and development project on the advantageous of wind power in Iceland. There are a number of areas in Iceland that show great potential for the successful utilisation of wind energy.

The wind turbines each have a 900 kW capacity and together their generating capacity could be up to 5.4 GWh per year. The masts is 55 metres heigh and each spade measures 22 metres in length. When the spades are at their highest position the unit is 77 metres of height. Wind turbines developed for further energy production will in all likelihood be larger than the most powerful turbines presently operating in Iceland today, reaching 7.5MW.


When we were there on July 26 the wind was only 5-10 mYsec and the average power only about 75kW for each turbine. We went to the turbine further north as there were no tourists. There we captured the sound. It can be heard during the recording that the sound of the spades changes according to the wind.

Good headphones recommended.
