In the northernmost part of Sweden, Swedish Lapland, there is an orchestra that is unlike any other. They embrace their arctic ancestry by creating music with something we’ve never seen before: ice.
Ice Music is a “celebration of the winter spirit” of Swedish Lapland, which is a winter wonderland for most of the year. Their “ice-struments” are all custom made and are capable of making absolutely beautiful music.
The Ice Music orchestra plays in a giant “cosmic igloo,” that glows and pulsates along with the music.
Watching these performers create stunning music from ice would be mesmerizing. It’s hard to believe that, before the concerts, all of the violins and cellos didn’t even exist (and soon would retire to just being ice again).
Playing a musical instrument with gloves on? Now that takes talent.
