Herdísarvík is a small bay and abandoned farm on the south coast of Reykjanes, Iceland. It was a remote location, accessible by foot, horseback, or small boats. The area has a rich history, including winter fishing and a prosperous farm. Einar Benediktsson, a famous writer, lived there until his death in 1940 with his wife. They preferred the tranquility of this place over the busy life in Reykjavík. The land is now owned by the University of Iceland. While recording the sound of Herdísarvík, I imagined living there, embracing the serene silence accompanied by the sounds of the ocean and birds singing. It sparked curiosity about how it would feel. Would it be enjoyable or unsettling? I would love to spend some time there to see how I would react to such a peaceful environment.
