Icelandic band Sigur Rós has embraced slow TV. Until 9 pm tonight, you have the chance to travel along Ring Road 1, watching the landscape, with their music in the background. The project, which is done in cooperation with Icelandic national broadcaster RÚV and Rás2, began last night.

During the broadcast, you’ll be able to listen to a constantly evolving sound track of their new songs, ‘Óveður,’ or Tempest, yet to be released. The sound track is meant to create a unique ephemeral sonic experience.

The broadcast can be watched here:

You can also follow the location of the truck on the map by visiting this website. Furthermore, you can tweet about the project here, using the hashtag #sigurrosrouteone.

Slow TV originated on NRK, the Norwegian government-owned TV station, which has broadcast from a ferry ride, a knitting session and from a cliff full of birds.

RÚV adopted slow TV for the first time in the spring of 2015, when it broadcast live from a farm during the lambing season.
