[creative-radio] FYI: Ice instruments make sweet music in Oulu, Finland


Ice instruments make sweet music in Oulu, Finland
"...Norwegian musician and composer Terje Isungset has played to audiences
all over the world using instruments made of ice. Isungset, who is playing
concerts in the northern Finnish city of Oulu this weekend, is a
world-renowned percussionist.

Although he has more than twenty years' experience of jazz and music across
the Nordic countries, Isungset now regards himself as more of a sound
artist and shaman, using ice to produce warm sounds and clear notes.
The artist has built instruments out of granite, birch, glass and metal.
The best ice he has found for musical instruments was at JukkasjÀrvi in
northern Sweden. Weather conditions are crucial when making instruments
from ice, and ice is an unpredictable material to work with.
