Icelandic writer Andri Snær Magnason and Kaśka Paluch of Noise From Iceland represent Reykjavík at the 59 Venice Biennale in a new project by the Japanese collective Dumb Type, which includes Oscar-winning and Grammy-winning composer Ryūichi Sakamoto.

Field recordings present, among others, Faxaflóahafnir harbour, Laugavegur street and Lake Tjörnin. Andri, who invited me to this project, I got to know thanks to a conversation about the sounds of Iceland – for him there is a special glacier sound on my map 🙂 The exhibition can be seen and heard at the Japanese Pavilion, Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia.

In addition to the exhibition at the Biennale di Venezia, in Munich’s Haus der Kunst, you can watch a special installation “Playback” by Ryuichi Sakamoto, which also uses field recordings, including those from Reykjavik, recorded by me especially for this project.
