Stuðlagil was written in the spring of 2019, for the Time of Music Festival in Viitasaari, Finland.
The piece depicts the scenery of Stuðlagil, a canyon of basalt columns in the Jökla glacial river in East Iceland. For centuries most of this fascinating canyon was hidden below the water level of the forceful river. But after the building of the highly controversial hydropower plant, Kárahnjúkarvirkjun, the water levels of the river dropped drastically, thus revealing the canyon.
