That Guy Plays a Wicked Ice Horn

Icemusicfestival 2010 from Icemusic on Vimeo.

Unhand that man taking a chainsaw to a Norwegian glacier! He's Terje Isungset, ice music composer. He takes glacier ice and molds it into musical instruments - ice percussion, ice chimes, even ice horns He performs concerts with the instruments before returning the ice to the glacier.  Given the weather we're expecting in the Northeast, this might be a good way to pass the time for the next few days.
