I added Djúpivogur to my map—a new red dot! This year’s ring road trip brought us to this charming town in East Iceland, famous for its bustling harbor. One of its highlights is the Elves Church, a fascinating rock formation. Around 9 p.m., I enjoyed a serene moment by the harbor, accompanied by the gentle […]

Summer in Iceland: the sound

How does Icelandic summer sound? I often get a question regarding the difference between Iceland in the summer and wintertime. And always say that it is a completely different planet. In the winter – all covered in snow, dark, mostly quiet, when it’s not stormy. Summer is pretty loud. Birds are coming back. There is […]

Raufarhólshellir: ice stalagmites singing

Coming back to this place, where everything started, always makes me quite melancholic. By „everything” I mean not only first sounds of Noise From Iceland, but also my life in Iceland – here I’ve met wonderful people who pushed me forward and supported (and they still do). I’ve never felt so belonging before.  In the […]

Safnanótt í Bókasafn Hafnafjarðar

For the audiovisual installation premiered at Night Museum in Bókasafn Hafnarfjarðar during Vetrarhátíð – Winter Lights Festival there are specially prepared sound tracks. They combine stories about Hidden People collected by my beloved Ísmús and electronic music and they are related to each pair of photos taken by Magdalena Lukasiak during her bike trip around […]

Skógafoss bathed in ice

I can’t believe I have done it after so many years of sound recording in Iceland: I forgot to bring my windscreen also known as a „dead cat” or „my furry hard-working friend” as my family calls it. Therefore, it was impossible to do a good recordings, without wind blowing straight into the microphone. BUT […]


In Iceland we have about 700 lava tubes. Raufarholshellir is one of the longest and the biggest. 5200 years ago, during the eruption of Leiti (in Blafjall), flowing lava has built up this tunnel. The sound was collected during the winter, when the floor is covered with “ice stalagmites” that are singing in the raindrops. 

Páskahellir – when the sun is dancing

I don’t know about you, but I need a little pause today. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that I returned to the sound collected in July this year in the East Fjords of Iceland, in the cave on the shore of the ocean, Páskahellir. Legend has it that when you visit the cave on […]

The fastest glacier to disappear

It was so beautiful yesterday on the Sólheimajökull glacier, that today is like we came back from a different planet. Every time I want to bring back the feelings and memories I just listen to the sound from that place. Sadly, Sólheimajökull is one of the fastest disappearing glaciers in Iceland. I can see with […]

Laugavegur Trail: Black desert

Right before entering the black desert of the Icelandic interior, we had to cross the glacial river and few other smaller streams. At that point, I did not know we are seeing the water for the last time – then next several hours of walking was just black sand and wind. I can say, that […]

Wulkan miłości: ognisty trójkąt

Fire of Love: a love triangle [this text but in English] Historię Katii i Maurice’a Krafftów poznaje każdy, kto zaczyna stawiać swoje pierwsze kroki w wulkanologii. Wulkanologia jest jednym z najbardziej niebezpiecznych zawodów świata, ale często wykonuje się go tak naprawdę zza biurka – obserwując pomiary sejsmiczne czy zdjęcia satelitarne. Katia i Maurice nie chcieli […]
