Route One by Sigur Rós

Route One is an inspired creation by one of the worlds most captivating bands…

From the band’s website:

“on the longest day of summer 2016 sigur rós drove the whole way round iceland’s ring road, broadcasting the entire 1332km journey live on youtube. the soundtrack to this “slow tv” adventure was created using generative music software taking the multi-track stems of the sigur rós song ‘óveður’ and endlessly reinventing them to create new and unpredictable musical directions in real time.  the very best moments from the 24 hour journey have now been pared down to a single album of great and reflective beauty. 8 tracks.”

I am inspired by the commitment to the lifestyle and culture of their native Iceland.  They are promoting art through the release of music and new media that only drives interest and appreciation for their homeland.  Not only are they extremely talented, but they convey this in the ambiance and solemnity in their music.
