Ice concert listed as the highlight of festival.

Review of our concert at the Førde festival in UK based magazine: Songlines.

"The most memorable performance was the premiere of Arctic Ice Music, by the world’s only ‘ice musician,’ Terje Isungset. He literally plays trumpets, xylophone, chimes and drums made out of ice. But however extraordinary and beautiful that is, there are limitations to what ice can do. So here he was working with Sami and Inuit singers from the Arctic plus Tuvan throat singer Radik Tyulyush, which brought in an awesome sonic landscape, created in just three days"....
"The various layers, textures and otherworldly sounds seemed like listening to an aural equivalent of the Northern Lights. Glorious, beautiful, but elusive. It is something that deserves to be seen around the world because it’s not only inspirational music, but there’s a powerful message in there as well"

World premiere of new music in Poland

Terje was one of 130 musicians on stage to perform the new written symfony made by Grzech Piotrowski.
A fantastic project. It can be heard on Polish National Radio, or on CD later on.
