This unique winter experience features live music by acclaimed Norwegian composer and instrumentalist Terje Isungset using instruments of pure ice such as ice horns, an iceophone and ice percussion brought from the mountains of Norway. Using these fragile instruments, some carved from ancient glaciers, Terje will give three concerts a day together with the Norwegian singer Lena Nymark in this intimate setting.
At other times throughout the day an ethereal sound and video installation will animate the space. The Idea of North, commissioned by Opera North Projects, sees Terje Isungset join forces with Phil Slocombe from Lumen to create a distinctive experience evoking the lands far to the North. Using rare archive film and footage, Phil’s intricately patterned, often mysterious imagery combines with Terje’s intensely physical soundscape created purely from ice.
