A merry band of complementary filmmakers, photographers, and musicians, a curated ensemble perfectly fitted to the landscape, are heading to remote Iceland to make images and a musical soundtrack inspired by the landscape and its people.
Photographers Tim Navis + Kim Høltermand and film collective Scenic are heading up the visual component, while composer and electronic producer Deru has assembled the musicians. Improvisation is intended to be a guiding force, say the creators. With the assistance of a community organized on Kickstarter, it’ll also be crowd-funded. In addition to the obligatory, pretty photo book and prints and boxed set of music, they also propose to share behind-the-scenes glimpses of the process, which crosses from the LA area to Danish architect-descended photographer Høltermand.
For fans of richly-sonic, thoughtfully-composed and designed electronic music, the music lineup looks fantastic. Aside from Deru, you get:
Shigeto (Ghostly International)
Asura (NonProjects / Leaving Records)
Tycho (ISO50 / Ghostly International)
Take (Alpha Pup)
Thomas Knak/Opiate (Co-Producer of Björk’s Vespertine)
Other artists are TBD.
But don’t listen to me; go grab Deru’s fantastic first single. [direct download link]
