All Ice As "Ice Music" Concert


When: Nov 3, 7:30 pm

Where: Tianqiao Performing Arts Center, Beijing

The Norwegian composer Terje Isungset is a leading European percussionist with a career spanning more than two decades. Throughout his musical career, he has promoted an innovative and creative style, making use of the products of nature for musical instruments such as stones, pieces of wood and tree bark.

But the innovation for which he has perhaps become best known came in 1999 when he first used ice to make music. The early experiments prompted him to use ice to make his own versions of musical instruments. In 2001, he released his first studio album with ice as the main source of sound. Instruments used included the "iceophone", a xylophone-like instrument made using ice blocks, an ice horn, chimes, along with harps, cellos and guitars all carved out of ice.
