The fountain in Stapavik | HLJÓÐMYND - SOUNDIMAGE
"Just below Þrottárskriður landslide is Stapavík, a beautiful gravel beach with high rock in the middle, like a huge stoned giant or troll. Along the beach are low cliffs where fresh water seeps out between the geologic age and wets the rocks."

A 24-Hour Soundscape of Found Sounds
"foundsoundscape.com. It is a 24-hour streaming assemblage of field recordings. Those recordings were collected in 1,000 different places by 100 different artists. In turn, (Janek) Schaefer collated and layered the source audio, so at any point the service is playing three different feeds. Make that four feeds: in addition, there is a live mic in Schaefer’s own studio, and that gets added to the audio. The resulting stream is intended to complement your own place and time. It is less a listening experience than something to be filtered into daily life."

Created from spontaneous otoacoustic emissions that were acoustically recorded inside ears of 30 individuals. Earside Out explores the mysterious and complex tonal clusters that some ears generate

12 speakers attached on thin steel strings are suspended between the floor and the ceiling. Each individual ear emission is spread over the corresponding number of speakers, which together form a 3-dimensional spiral that resembles the cochlea within the inner ea

Ancient Man Used “Super-Acoustics” to Alter Consciousness (... and speak with the dead?)
"Sound in a Basso/Baritone range of 70 – 130 hz vibrates in a certain way as a natural phenomenon of the environment in the Hypogeum, as it does in Newgrange passage tomb, megalithic cairns and any stone cavity of the right dimensions. At these resonance frequencies, even small periodic driving forces can produce large amplitude oscillations, because the system stores vibrational energy. Echoes bounce off the hard surfaces and compound before they fade. Laboratory testing indicates that exposure to these particular resonant frequencies can have a physical effect on human brain activity."

The “Classical” Button (MP3)
"I like to think that this particular hotel radio is tuned to sounds leaking back from the future, a time when this kind of electronic noise, this light industrial piece, this static-laden minimal techno, is considered classical music."
