24 Pictures

The number 24 is omnipresent, in music and also in other places. The day has 24 hours, but we also have 24 keys, if you count major and minor. Also, composers like Bach, Chopin and Rachmaninov have written preludes (and fugues in the case of Bach) in all 24 keys.

24 pictures is a project in which I release 24 songs in a predetermined key-order, as well as performing live concerts, where everything is improvised on the spot. Now 5 songs have been released digitally, along with 2 concerts in Akureyri and Reykjavík.
