Epic Ice Double Bass
Very late last night in a chilly -20.5c, the mighty Bill Covitz put the finishing touches to our 10th anniversary ice instrument backdrop featuring the ice double bass. And yes, this ice double bass is seriously large - the neck alone is over 4m in length...
The Ice Music Festival crew have done an amazing job in completing an incredible snow & ice arena and stage. Lighting and sound techs have been installed their gear all day and musicians and artists have been arriving all day - Ice Music Festival 2015 is nearly ready to go-go.
Our first event 'Mr Ping' starts at 17.30hrs today. Check out Knut Lothe's story over at our programme page. Later tonight is 'Meltwater' at 20.00hrs when Sigurd Rotvik Tunestveit performs a specially commissioned Ice Music Festival 10th Anniversary composition.
Warp up warm!
