Default Damien Recording/Filming in Iceland

As per the official website. Did a quick search and didn't find anything, so if it has been posted, feel free to lock things up.

"Damien to record & film new material in front of an Icelandic audience in November

Damien travels to Iceland early November to record and film new material in front of an Icelandic audience. The recording and filming session will take place in Reykjavik, in a undisclosed space which aims to create an intimate setting for Damien to perform his new material in front of live audience. He will also be playing some material from earlier albums as well as answering questions from the audience. There will be four exclusive recording sessions, over two days (4th & 5th November), and only 90 tickets will be available for each session. Ticket information to follow later."

it's kinda cheap to go from Europe nowadays... in the past it was $$$ cos only Icelandair was going, but now there are other Ryanair-like companies flying

But Sharmin, not sure from Canada...

Hmm.. Iceland, nature album... I hope he'll do something like this. If he does, I might start liking him again.

but this has to mean it's a full album... he wouldn't do that for a side project ala Cake Sale with 2/3 songs... right???

I always thought he would not stop songwriting, because he is so good at it.
Happy that he seems to be willing to share his vomit* with the world again.

Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice will hold four concerts in Iceland on November 4-5. The concerts will be so-called open-recordings and Rice plans to use the recordings of the concerts for his next album.

The concert venue will remain a secret until a few hours before the concerts begin and only 90 people will be able to attend each concert, Morgunbladid reports.

“Once he has finished playing he is going to give the audience a chance to chat and ask questions. So it will be a cozy and up-and-personal experience,” said the concerts’ organizer Kári Sturluson.

“[Rice] has been here often, both to play and to relax. He likes it here, where he seeks energy and artistic inspiration,” Sturluson stated.

“Therefore he wants to come here to record both audio and video with an Icelandic audience, hoping that some of the songs will be of good enough quality to be included in his next album. So he will perform some songs for the first time,” Sturluson explained.

Ticket sales will open shortly.

Or it may be something like when he recorded the showcase at Wisseloord Studios in The Netherlands in 2006 and then released the recording in the Dutch edition of Dogs... Maybe he wants to do an Icelandic version of the next single

Don't freak out or anything... but doesn't this sound a little tentative? Like, MAYBE there will be an album out of it? Much less possitive than, say "10 days = 10 songs = album Nuevo"... just saying.

album in early 2010, yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the thing is that the Icelandic audiences are so quiet that the recordings will be like studio versions, sure you won't hear anyone shouting/screaming... maybe that's why he's doing it in Iceland and not in Mexico or Brazil or Italy... let's see if he does a song in Hopelandic!!!

Last thing he wants is a flowing, dramatic ending to a new song and then someone going
