During the winter of 2007, a friend burned me a CD of his favorite band. He warned me that I wouldn't understand a single word that was sung because it was in Icelandic, and to give it a little time to see if it might grow and not to disregard it too quickly. When I was driving home that night I fed the CD-R into the glowing green slot on the dashboard. Time wasn't needed to warm up to this strange music as a sudden rush of curiosity and wonder and awe crashed through the car. A tsunami wave of sound had decimated everything that was familiar and safe to me, but the adventure and mystery pointed towards the idea that this music was not from this planet. The band was Sigur Rós. The album was Takk. My life changed forever.
Ever since that day I have been trying to create a world in my head or a life to be lived that is something I would read in a fictional story. Lets turn this reality into something we can dream about. Lets build us fiction.
