Terje Isungset: Winter Songs

The Norwegian percussionist Terje Isungset has an almost-shamanic power to conjure music out of unmusical objects, scraping stones or knocking wood.

Now his medium is ice, and all the mysteriously beautiful instrumental sounds here are made with frozen water – including ice fiddle, ice guitar and ice hardangerfiddle.

Lena Nymark’s vocals are like clouds of breath on a frosty morning.
