Recording of an ice surface during hard storm.
This 20 minute recording session was carried out on 7th of
January 2004 on Lake Havravatn in Iceland.
An Accelerometer was stuck into the creaking ice,
enabling us to listen to how the wind would move the ice in
various rythmic patterns. Frequency peaks around 15khz.
What came to my ears was a neat but crispy creaking, appearing
from the whole surface of the lake, that was moving in sensitive
vibrations to the wind. It was interesting to hear the whole body of
this lake in sound, and how it moved by the power of the wind.
A beautiful sonification of a snow storm!
