Jarvis Cocker visits my family at Melrakkaslétta…

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 10.16.26 PMStrange things and randomness tend to happen in my life and one of them you can here very soon on BBC Radio 4. There is a show by Jarvis Cocker called Wireless Nights and they came up north to record the mood of the endless summer nights just below the arctic circle up at our deserted farm in Melrakkaslétta. As you can read in the BBC description of the show: Jarvis Cocker was looking for the centre of the earth, he was diving through the magma underworld and found himself with our family up north. I will say no more, very curious to listen myself!


Here is the BBC description:

Jarvis Cocker wanders the lava fields of Iceland in search of the unseen forces of night. In the midnight shadow of Snaefellsjokull, the volcano featured in Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Jarvis considers the timelessness of the landscape, until he discovers sheep time. His sheep guides only lead him further into the unknown, through a hole in the lava floor and on a journey through a magma underworld, finding there a symphony orchestra, human seals and a wake.

Producer Neil McCarthy.
