Tim Linhart started off as an ice sculptor. Well, he’s still an ice sculptor, but now the crazy dude supplies a small orchestra with working music instruments made out of frozen water.

The journey to founding Ice Music started with a fluke, when Linhart carved an upright bass out of ice and was surprised to find that it sounded good. Now Ice Music holds regular winter concerts inside of a specially designed igloo in Sweden with instruments ranging from a violin and guitar to xylophones and the aforementioned bass. The instruments require constant maintenance from Linhart, since even in cooler temperatures a musician’s body heat will cause troublesome melting.


This video is third in a series called Break The Cubicle, which has also profiled a metal sculptor and a guy who makes beautiful mud balls (it’s cooler than it sounds).
