Synopsis: This piece features surface and inner ice recordings made in the

behaviour than sound travelling through air (343 m/s). The crackles and
mechanical vibrations propagate through the ice, travelling long distances, and
producing stunning percussive sounds and ethereal resonances. During a week
In January 2016, I made long recording sessions which created more than
sixty hours of materials. The piece could be heard as one week of listening
compressed into almost eight minutes.
