News__ Ice Records Cometh

December 09, 2009 | By

Artist Katie Paterson was bummed about the melting glaciers of Iceland and decided to make a musical statement about the global warming effect. First she recorded various sounds of the melting glaciers. Then she collected three liters of melted glacial water, froze it and pressed three playable albums out of ice. As part of the art piece, the records play until they are melted. You can listen to them here or read a little more about her work here.
