In the latest sonic exploration, "Noise to Sleep," the artist behind the acclaimed project Noise From Iceland ventures into the intimate spaces of rest and relaxation, using the profound and evocative sounds of Iceland's natural landscape. This ambient album emerges as a bridge between the raw beauty of the Icelandic outdoors and the personal quest for serenity and sleep.

Crafted with meticulous attention to the elements that compose Iceland's unparalleled natural environment, "Noise to Sleep" features field recordings of lava flows, the haunting howl of storms, the serene songs of birds, the delicate crackling of ice, and the tranquil waters of lakes. These sounds, collected from the diverse corners of Iceland, serve as the album's foundation, inviting listeners into a meditative experience that transcends the boundaries of traditional music.

In a harmonious blend of nature and culture, the album incorporates two rímur, traditional Icelandic poems, setting them against the backdrop of ambient soundscapes. These rímur,, sourced from the historical ISMUS catalogue, add a layer of depth and narrative to the tracks, connecting the past with the present in a seamless auditory experience.

The origins of "Noise to Sleep" trace back to the innovative project Noise From Iceland, renowned for being the first interactive sound map of Iceland. This evolving platform gained international acclaim, capturing the attention of influential figures such as Ryuichi Sakamoto and his collective Dumb Type. The field recordings from Noise From Iceland notably contributed to the composition "Playback," which has been showcased at prestigious venues including the Venice Biennale, Munich, and Tokyo.

Responding to the calls of listeners worldwide, "Noise to Sleep" is not just an album; it's an invitation to immerse in the calming beauty of Icelandic nature from the comfort of one's own environment. It is designed for those seeking a moment of peace, a meditative tool, or simply a companion to guide them into the realm of dreams.

"Noise to Sleep" is more than music—it's a journey, a therapy, and a testament to the timeless allure of Iceland's landscapes and its cultural heritage. It offers listeners a unique opportunity to experience the tranquility of Icelandic nature, facilitating a space for relaxation and deep sleep.
