About Noise From Iceland

Hi! I am working on creating the sound map of Iceland, which will allow you to make a sensual journey around the island. 

I try to reach the most popular, but also less accessible places with a microphone - like the interior of a glacier. Since March, I have been trying to regularly collect sounds from volcanic eruptions in the Fagradalsfjall / Geldingadalur area.

What I have already done you can see on my website www.noisefromiceland.com and Facebook page facebook.com/noisefromiceland

It takes quite an effort - also material - to do so. With a help from my Patrons I can travel more often and collect sounds with better equipment. Thanks to you I have already bought professional headphones and MIDI controller (because I am trying to arrange some music to my Icelandic noises). 



Niður / noise / szum is an art project that poses the question "How does Iceland sound like?”. I have been collecting field recordings from all over the island since January 2020, creating the first in history sound map of Iceland.

I started my work at the beginning of last year. This coincided with the global lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic, leaving Iceland deserted almost overnight. It allowed to collect the sounds of nature undisturbed by human activity. At the same time, the recordings, as well as the photos documenting the project, showing this void, can be moving.

The project was enthusiastically received all over the world: for some it was an opportunity for a "sensual" trip around Iceland, for others a chance to return to the sound of the island before the tourist boom.



I am a tour guide, journalist, graduate of musicology at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. I also collaborated with many media dealing with culture and tourism.
