Elvar Már Kjartansson

Elvar Már Kjartansson (b. 1982) is a sound craftsman and explorer. Under the name of Auxpan he creates musical experiences in which soundbites, rhythmic patterns produced by self-developed devices, and field recordings come together in an experimental and highly personal sound experience.

Kjartansson has performed at numerous festivals in Iceland and abroad, and has done commissioned work and exhibitions, exploring the myriads of properties and characteristics of sound. He is based in Reykjavík and Seyðisfjörður, Iceland.
