News video: Chill out to the cool tunes of Terje Isungset

If you want to a get a cool sound, make ice sound - One of Europe’s most accomplished and innovative musicians and percussionists is Norwegian, Terje Isungset , and his instruments are like nothing you have ever seen.

A recent performance at London's Royal Festival Hall featured a set including ice horns, ice drums and an 'iceofone' - an ice xylophone - all used to back female vocal stylings from Maria Skranes.

"It is not me and my project and my person, my ego, it's the elements, it's the ice and the water.

The fact that most of our bodies are made out of water or consists of water and the lack or water for human beings.

Of course the melting glaciers, the climate changes etc," says Terje.

All of the instruments for the London show were made in Norway and shipped over in special containers.

Founder of an Ice Music Festival in Norway, Isungset plays at about 50 festivals and concerts a year , many in the cold conditions of Norway, Canada or Russia..
