the 'island | fjorur' series of installations and audio pieces has been in development since 2013, resulting in 4 installations thus far and several performance based diffusions inc. in Iceland, Japan, the UK and Australia.

these have taken the form of the pieces:

'island | fjorur (the sound of the world turning)'

'island | fjorur (star farm)'

'island | fjorur (score for listening)'

'island | fjorur (bethlehem wires)'

island | fjorur (geothermal activity)'

island | fjorur (krafla)'

and the forthcoming release of a book of scores for listening alongside text pieces by Pheobe riley Law and an archive of several hours of recordings & selected sound works


the work involves the use of JrF geophones, hydrophones, contact mics & coils along with ultrasonic detectors and of course approaches to durational listening, intuitive and extended recording techniques.
