Sönghellir and a day off with Cye

I had a day off recently which is a bit rare for me. I spent it knocking about the city with Cye.

We jumped fences and drank beer.

We waded through long grass at sunset and teetered on the edge of high cliffs in the cool of the night.

We took pictures.

It was a perfect day off in the city.

Cye is a violinist and makes beautiful music… Cave in the Sky is a project that he’s been working on with a bunch of other talented souls.

I wanted to make images of Cye that would bring about the same intoxicating sense of nostalgia that I feel when I listen to his music.

The track below is called Sönghellir  and means cave of songs.
