Meradalir I 08:08
Meradalir II 06:54


On 3rd August 2022, almost a year since the previous eruption ceased in the Reykjanes Peninsula in Southern Iceland, a new volcano emerged in the nearby valley of Meradalir.

Ben Frost and Francesco Fabris arrived at the eruption site within hours, documenting this much more powerful and significantly larger volcano throughout the night, which formed a string of explosive fissures stretching over 250m across the valley floor.

This new two-track EP consists of a first piece constructed of unaltered field recordings from Meradalir, and a second movement which evokes transformation, obliteration and rebirth through creative processing of the original material.
