Since 1996 I have performed in caves here in the Faroe Islands. Depending on the weather, the audience and/or the musicians are on land or in small boats. These concerts are heavyli influenced by nature. The weather element and the ocean and cliffs are very dominant in this experience and make their mark on the performance. The CD releases Klæmint and part of Anybody Home were recorded in one of the caves, Klæmintsgjógv.
