The Island Of Death is based around the Lindbergh case in which the victim was a 20-month-old toddler, abducted from his family home. Over two months later toddlers badly decomposed body was discovered a short distance from the Lindberghs' home. Martin Bladh re-creates the horrific discovery of the decomposed body by recording flies over an interview between American journalist and public commentator, Bill Moyers and American writer and illustrator of children's literature, Maurice Sendak who was seriously affected by the case. The usage of children's rhymes represents the innocence of Lindberghs' baby (and all the young victims of senseless violence) and the noisier parts mirror the twisted mind of a killer, Bruno Richard Hauptmann who was executed by electric chair at the New Jersey State Prison on April 3, 1936. The musical arrangements, the written work, the artwork. It all makes perfect sense and once again Bladh's intelligence shines through his work as he documents the horrific events that took place in a small quiet town in New Jersey.
