Landscape of Hope, Iceland (2019)
BardSpec is the ambient project from Enslaved composer/guitarist Ivar Bjørnson. Landscape of Hope is an improvised multimedia and musical outfit which magnifies narratives to counter discrimination and build resilience; it is created and curated by Canadian research-creation specialists and Grimposium festival veterans Vivek Venkatesh and Owen Chapman. Canadian filmmaker David Hall (Uneasy Sleeper) – who also runs live visuals for Bardspec and is a visual designer for Landscape of Hope – will contribute his unique brand of provocative and thought-provoking films. The Eistnaflug 2019 performance will be the first live collaboration between BardSpec and Landscape of Hope.
