"Vidgelmir Cave" was inspired by the field recording of the cave by Magnus Bergsson. If you have ever been into a cave you know that there is not a lot of sound taking place. Caves are often very quiet. Thus, Magnus' recording is quite impressive as the continual dripping water in the lava-tube cave vividly draws the listener into a subterranean world of sound.

Upon hearing Magnus' recording for the first time, I immediately was inspired to put music to it. In this highly atmospheric work, I kept the cave sounds in the forefront for most of the composition, rather than in the background like a lot of field recordings are placed. I wanted to share the foreground equally between musical tones and cave sounds to create a deeper sense of atmosphere for this composition. I used Absynth to create some sonic tones that resonated both externally and internally within me, as well as revealing an emotive story of an explorer spelunking through the dark reaches of Iceland's largest cave system, Vidgelmir.
