Making music out of... ICE!

Making music out of ice

Norwegian musician Terje Isungset has brought his bizarre music act to London... he plays instruments made from ice!

And they're not just made from any old ice, it's ice from the Jostedalsbreen glacier that's 600 years' old.

His ice instruments range from a horn to an 'ice-ophone'.

And the music world seems to be taking it all very seriously - Isungset will be playing his composition, Ice Music, at the prestigious Somerset House.
