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+.

Raforkuvindmyllur - Wind Turbines

Hlji  einni vindmyllu er notalegt. En hver vera hrifin er 80 myllur vera settar upp? Ljsmynd: Eln rnadttirNoran vi Brfellsvirkjun eru tvr vindmyllur. egar okkur bar a gari 26. essa mnaar var vindur um 5-10 m/sek og raforkuframleisla einungis um 75 kW. Nokkru norar er nnur vindmylla, sem ekki var opin, en ar sem enginn var vi hana var hn valin til hljritunar.

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.
