FLÖSKUSKEYTI - ALBUM IN A BOTTLE

Album in a bottle - The bottle is equipped with a satellite transmitter that provides its location every four hours via a GPS receiver. 
The project is a collaboration between musician Ásgeir Trausti, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service, Verkís and Ævar vísindamaður. The project serves as a unique way to create awareness on the impacts of human waste within the environment, particularly marine pollution. 

Back in July, Ásgeir recorded 30 unique 7" vinyl's during his 24h Straight-to-Vinyl recording marathon, broadcasted as live slow TV on Icelandic national television and on Ásgeir's Youtube channel globally. In the last few weeks, Ásgeir's fans world-wide have had the opportunity to get their hands on one of those vinyl's via treasure hunts that have taken place in different territories. The treasure hunts come to a close with the ambitious undertaking of the ‘album in a bottle' project. 

Flöskuskeyti sem inniheldur vinyl plötu Ásgeirs Trausta - Verkís, Ásgeir Trausti, Ævar vísindamaður og RÚV. 
Flöskuskeytið er útbúið með GPS-staðsetningarbúnaði og gervihnattasendi sem gerir fólki kleift að fylgjast með ferðalögum plötunnar.
Verkefninu er ætlað að vekja athygli á sjávarmengun, einkum plastmengun, með því að sýna fram á að það sem fer í sjóinn hverfur ekki, heldur ferðast um heimsins höf og rekur á strendur annars staðar.
