!ALBUM IN A BOTTLE ANNOUNCEMENT! My Album in a Bottle washed upon a beach on the east coast of Iceland a few days ago and was found by Sigrún Sigurpálsdóttir who now owns this very special album. Congratulations! I recorded the album as part of my Straight to Vinyl project where I recorded 30 x 7" vinyls during a live 24h broadcast on Icelandic National Television and my Youtube channel. Initially, we dropped the album (encased inside a bottle and equipped with a satellite transmitter) in the ocean from a helicopter during the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival last November but after two weeks it stranded on an uninhabited island in Breiðarfjörður on the west coast of Iceland. With the help of a few good men who went to pick up the album and Eimskip who were kind enough to let us put it in on board their container ship Lagarfoss on route to Rotterdam the album then embarked on a new adventure when it was thrown overboard just south of Höfn í Hornarfjörður on November 24th. Since then the album travelled over 5.000 km before washing up on shore, even crossing the arctic circle at one point! You can see the details of the travels here: http://www.verkis.is/gps/ And here you can see Sigrún and her family opening up the bottle with the album which luckily proved to be whole and not damaged at all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=87&v=YPboXqjjW7w There are still some of those rare 7" vinyls in the world that remain to be hidden for some lucky people to find but on my website you can find a list of all the winners to date and which albums they own: https://www.asgeirmusic.com/straighttovinyl For The Album in a Bottle project we collaborated with engineering firm Verkís Verkfræðistofa, Ævar vísindamaður and Icelandic National Broadcasting Service RÚV. In addition to the fun factor of the project, the aim was to raise awareness on the negative impacts of marine pollution while simultaneously contributing to a scientific study on how winds and currents affect how things drift in the ocean. Big thanks go out to all collaborators and everyone interested in the project. -Ásgeir & team #albuminabottle #asgeirstraighttovinyl

!ALBUM IN A BOTTLE ANNOUNCEMENT! As some of you may have noticed the bottle message was hesitant to leave Iceland and stranded on a uninhabited Icelandic island in Breiðafjörður after only two weeks of drifting:) Breiðafjörður is a large fjord on the west coast of Iceland with thousands of islands. The tidal currents there can be strong and therefore it can be dangerous to sail between the islands. For security reasons we got a few good men that know the area well to pick up the bottle. The good news is that the album has now embarked on a new adventure as we managed to put in on board Eimskip's container ship Lagarfoss on route to Rotterdam. The album was then thrown overboard just south of Höfn í Hornarfjörður. Let's hope it's ready for a longer journey now and ends up where there are actual recipients;) You can follow its travels right here: https://www.asgeirmusic.com/straighttovinyl/ http://www.verkis.is/gps Verkís Verkfræðistofa Ævar vísindamaður RÚV #albuminabottle #asgeirstraighttovinyl

So, last Friday we dropped a unique 7" in the ocean from a helicopter just south of Reykjavík. Whoever finds it at the other end gets to keep it. The project, that we worked on with engineering firm Verkís Verkfræðistofa, the scientist and TV personality Ævar vísindamaður and the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service RÚV, serves as a unique way to create awareness on the impacts of human waste within the environment, particularly marine pollution, and simultaneously provides important information about how things drift in the ocean. The bottle is equipped with a satellite transmitter that provides its location every four hours via a GPS receiver so it's being tracked and latest signals show it to be heading in a rather surprising direction.

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM ÁSGEIR: Excited to tell you all that I'm set to drop a one-of-a-kind 7” vinyl inside a ‘bottle’ into the ocean ahead of my headline slot at Iceland Airwaves Music Festival tomorrow night. To execute this unique and exciting project I have teamed up with geothermal utilization engineering company, Verkís Verkfræðistofa, scientist Ævar vísindamaður and RÚV (The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service). You can watch the drop live here on my Facebook page starting at 1:15pm GMT tomorrow, Friday November 3rd. The bottle, which will be dropped from a helicopter just South of Reykjanes/Keflavik tomorrow will hold a very rare 7” of two tracks recorded during my 24h Straight to Vinyl recording marathon earlier this year. It will also be equipped with a satellite transmitter that provides its location every four hours via a GPS receiver, enabling you guys to observe the journey of the bottle live on my own website and via Verkís' website. The album may take days, weeks, months or years to end up on shores elsewhere in the world and whoever finds it at the end of its journey will be the lucky winner of the rare 7”! Read all about the project via the official announcement: https://goo.gl/Lvivoe Follow the album once it's dropped in the ocean here: www.asgeirmusic.com/straighttovinyl http://www.verkis.is/gps #albuminabottle #asgeirstraighttovinyl I'm extremely excited about this project and I can't wait to see what happens. -Ásgeir
