This is worlds first icemusic recording ever. Done in January 2001 at the famous Ice Hotel in Sweden. The recording was done in a huge igloo built for becoming a cinema at the ice hotel.We used ice from Tårnelven in Jukkasjarvi. It was 37 degrees below zero outdoor, and 6 below in the igloo. Isungset discovered totally new sounds of the ice. Specially surprising was the low frequenses.The record was firt released on Jazzland Recordings(universal music).
It was remastered in 2007 and released on All Ice Records.
