Dreamy Ice Music

Each year for the past 15 years, Swedish artist and musician Tim Linhart carves violins, violas, cellos, guitars and marimbas out of solid ice for his Ice Music ensemble. A single instrument can take him up to one week to build. Aside from the strings and frets and so on, these beautiful, otherworldly instruments are entirely made of ice and fully playable. They are also illuminated by LEDs, which lends an additional dreamy quality to the performances. Each winter Ice Music plays dozens of concerts inside a concert hall that is also made of ice. In addition to classical pieces, they also perform country and bluegrass numbers. Because their frozen venue is kept at a constant chilly temperature of -5℃, audience members are advised to dress warmly. [Photo/icpress.cn]
