Isungset was a percussionist whose music took a new direction.
He was playing in a concert behind a frozen waterfall when he became interested in ice music.
Now he composes music for ice instruments.
He calls his music chill-out music.
He puts the instruments in the deep freeze after each performance to prevent them from melting.
He says that the quality of the ice can affect the quality of the sound.
He uses his music to raise people’s awareness of nature.
These days he is in demand and has recorded six albums so far.
He is a very talented musician.
The message of his music is about the beauty of nature. I think he tries to show people that nature can provide us with everything we need, even music.
He said that his interest in ice music began when he played at a concert held behind a frozen waterfall.
Terje said that he wanted to raise people’s awareness of nature through his instruments and ice music.
He said that the only way he could escape normal music traditions was to change the instruments he used as well as the way he approached music.
Terje also says that the temperature inside the concert hall affects the sound of the music.
