In October of 2016, we had the opportunity to spend time in Iceland’s breathtaking Thingvellir National Park. The idea was to be inspired by the vast landscape and significant history. (The oldest parliament in the world was founded in Thingvellir in 930 AD). We got to stay in a beautiful little cabin by the Thingvellir lake and record in the historic church in the heart of Thingvellir National Park.
Thingvellir is geographically located exactly where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. These plates diverge at a rate of 1 to 2 centimeters each year, causing the earth to continually open up and change.
Just as new life is constantly being birthed in Thingvellir, our improvisations are like new musical “creations” which emerged from that unique place.
