The composition Reykjavík GPS is an ode to the centre of Reykjavík and its past, present and future. The music is connected to specific GPS coordinates in the city centre so you will hear it change as you walk through town. The music resembles a hidden landscape, an invisible city within the city, waiting to be explored.
