MUSIC BY AND FOR GLACIERS
By being on-the-spot, field recording and performing with various artists in Alpine ice caves, the project Iced Sound conceives a unique sonic experience with endangered alpine glaciers and its inhabitants. At the heart of the project lays sound material recorded in remote places surrounded by ice. The music is about melting, about aggregate states that are in flux, made by nature and humans, and tells poetically and subjectively what impact these changes have on the environment and its inhabitants.
The work suggests on the one hand the impact of human action, on the other hand it shows an attempt to get in touch with this fragile environment by having a subjective conversation through its sounds. Starting from questioning the way humankind deals with places/spots (and species) which are beyond its tangible range of vision and experience, this work explores the story of these unseen and unheard landscapes through music.
