Songmapping Ólafsfjörður comprises two bodies of work:
Heraclitus in Iceland — a series of compositions and videos reflecting
on continuity and temporality in relation to being a "visitor" in a place;
Singing with Scenery — a quick response project that sees me making
small improvisations in various locations in and around the town.

The 'Runic Engine' is a chance-based compositional structure derived from the format of a simple reading of the divinatory symbols called Runes.
In the traditional version of a reading the first rune represents the present, the second the action, the third the future outcome. Using Max/MSP programming this format has been co-opted to become a chance based compositional process.

Sounding the Future brings together the worlds of speculative fiction and audio art. It is an intensive program of research and creative development that will seek to predict what art in future will sound like. This act of prediction is inevitably informed by the present and thus it will also take stock of the sound of art today.
Sounding the Future will result in a body of ficto-critical works that can be delivered via gallery installation, radiophonic presentation and e-publishing.
