Terje Isungset: a pioneer in icemusic since 1999.

Percussionist & composer Terje Isungset has since the late 1980`s combined natural elements in his music through use of wood, stones, metal, machine sounds etc.
The use of ice was long a dream, but seemed unachievable.
In 1999 Terje was commissioned to make a concert held in a frozen waterfall ordered by the Lillehammer Winter Festival. He decided to use elements from the river itself as musical instruments in his composition. Stones, wood and finally: ICE, were included.

The Icemusicproject had started and the first ice music CD ever was recorded at Ice Hotel Sweden in 2001(“Iceman Is”). Terje continued his work with the beauty of icemusic and founded All Ice Records in 2005. An independent record company to release music played on ice instruments only.

The same year Isungset got the idea of making an icemusic festival. Worlds first Icemusicfestival took place at Geilo-Norway by first full moon 2006.
In 2007 the first icemusic tour ever took place. In total 33 concerts.

6 CD`s of Icemusic has been released, and several concerts has been held around the world (Japan, China, Russia, India, USA, Canada, Australia and most European countries).
Terje Isungset has developed his own musical universe by using pure frozen water from the lakes or rivers  to carve his own instruments. The beauty of ice.
