Sonic Polar Explorer

At 2pm today Matthias Urban presents SiAI:

“Four years of pristine Icelandic recordings converge, unfolding as the story of a sonic adventurer, plunging himself into polar temperatures, daring the surf to swallow him whole, gingerly approaching the local seal population and asking for ~ no, stealing ~ an interview. A cacophony of surf and snow that sounds as bracing as the conditions in which it was recorded.” (

Recorded in Iceland during 2013 – 2016, originally released 2018 on cassette via Dinzu Artefacts.
