After creating a first sound map of Iceland in history - - the Noise From Iceland project has been released on an album basis. These are field recordings from the island with trance and techno music composed to them. In total, almost an hour of noise - volcano, lava, waterfalls, Icelandic animals and rivers - selected to engage the listener's ear as much as possible. - The sound does not have to be clear, but it has to be interesting - says the author, Kaśka Paluch - my guru of field recordings, Geir Jenssen once told me and this thought was my motto while working on this album.

Noise From Iceland has been created since January 2020. It is an attempt to answer the question: what does Iceland sound like? Proving that apart from beautiful pictures, this majestic land of fire and ice has a lot to offer also to other senses. - The motive for starting work on the sound map of Iceland was a meeting with a blind tourist who was on my trip when I was working as a guide - explains Kaśka Paluch - It was she who told me how much there is to know in Iceland, even when you cannot see it.

Kaśka went with a microphone on a trip around the island, recording the greatest attractions of Iceland - the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, the Skogafoss waterfall or the Raufarholshellir lava tunnel as well as Fagradalsfjall volcano. The start of collecting field recordings coincided with the global lockdown caused by the pandemic. This made most of the recorded places blank. This emptiness was poignant, but it gave nature a space for uninterrupted speech.

- After the volcano eruption at Fagradalsfjall in March this year, I climbed the active crater almost twenty times to be able to record the sound of the volcano and lava without being polluted by the sounds of helicopters or drones - says Kaśka. I once calculated that it was over a hundred thousand steps.
