Music from Glaciers

I listened to a record playing music from a glacier.

It was at the Artium, the Basque Museum-Centre of Contemporary Art, in Vitoria, Spain, that I heard this music.

The ice records were made by Katie Paterson, who recorded the sounds of glaciers in Iceland and re-froze water from the glaciers into records. The records were then played until they melted and they were filmed, so it was a recording of these that I watched and listened to in the gallery.

I think I heard that once at MOMA in Oxford. Fascinating.

Maybe I didn't need to go all the way to Spain to hear it then. :)

Cool! I looked at her website and saw the phoning the glacier one and thought it looked fun.

They didn't have that one in the Artium though, just the videos of the ice records.

Gosh. Astounded again at the amazingly beautiful things that go on in this world.

It makes me wonder what else you can make records out of. I just had a quick search and it seems there are records made out of chocolate!
