Terje Isungset ice instruments
Maria Skranes vocals
Norwegian musician and composer Terje Isungset is one of Europe’s most accomplished and innovative percussionists. He is a pioneer of ice instruments; extraordinary feats of sculpture, crafted from solid blocks of pure ice, along with instruments made from other natural elements such as arctic birch, granite, slate and sheep bells.
Terje’s work takes jazz and Scandinavian music far beyond traditional boundaries with poetic use of musical timbre and colour. Tonight he opens with Tribute to Nature, a set dedicated to his birch and granite percussion. The sublime Norwegian vocalist Maria Skranes then joins him for a set with his ethereal ice instruments including ice horns, an iceofon and ice percussion.
