We Have a Map of the Piano

More from Iceland.
I think I posted this once before as a music clip only. Long ago. So far back I can't remember.
If I wasn't so lazy I'd go look. But that was then, this is now. Or almost now, dammit, too slow, it's then again already. Time like an ever-flowing stream and all that.


  1. talking of Iceland, someone on downsizer forum found this...

  2. Yep I saw that one reported in Iceland review.

    "This has made the Met issue a “Specialist remark” on its web. The remark is as follows:

    “Presently, there are no signs of an imminent volcanic eruption in Iceland. The Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) did not issue a warning last weekend in connection with increased seismicity beneath the Vatnajökull ice-cap. If signs of an eruption were apparent, IMO would issue a warning immediately.
    The origin was an interview with a professor of geology on RÚV state radio. Páll Einarsson discussed a round of earthquakes in the northwestern part of Vatnajökull, close to Bárdarbunga. Foreign media reported on the statement.

    “It seems that media frenzy has started because of this innocent comment on Bárdarbunga,” professor Einarsson said. “Maybe a typical frenzy, where one news bureau echoes another, magnifying the story at each instant.”

    Einarsson continued in an interview with RÚV on Wednesday: “The story has gone far away from what I said in the interview on Sunday night.”

    He also pointed out that eruptions are common in Iceland and that most of them are very small and localized."

    You may relax a little.

  3. I don't think "red tops" really do reasoned comment on *anything* !! :-)

    do you get clayart forum? This came up in one of the threads about cold weather

  4. Funny, though I don't get clayart Forum, i also resad about frostquakes for the first time in my life, this morning on TYWIKIWIDBI..
    googling it, because I wasn't sure that it wasn't a hoax, I found a stack of stories, all from within the last few days.
    All of a sudden, they're everywhere, yet, though i'm interested in geophysical events, I'd never ever heard of them.
    I'm still a little doubtful, I could imagine a loud bang as rock is broken by water freezing in a crack, but an earthquake-like phenomenon experienced over a wide area? why, in all these years of being interested in the action of ice on rocks in cold climates, would i never ever have read anything about cryoseisms, and all of a sudden they're everywhere?
