Written around a simple motif which is first introduced through the viola. This symbolises the uncertainty of the Icelandic landscapes.
This entire piece is a reflection of the journey took from Hlemmur, a small street in Reykjavik, Iceland, to Vik, a coast town located in the south of Iceland.
I wanted to create the overwhelming power of the landscape. Ultimately giving the feeling of claustraphobia which in turn is contradicted by the openess and freedom the landscape posses.
Throughout the piece their are mood indications which represents different aspects of the landscape.
