A co-composing project by four jazz musicians based on photographs of Icelandic sceneries. Spectacular photographs of Icelandic landscapes help build visual moods and act as context for our compositions. Each musician is awarded two photographs, which become the starting point of his own individual composition. The result is a varied and contrasting concert, which includes unique compositions on a backdrop of Icelandic photographs. – An exceptional teamwork across the Nordic countries
