We have no words to express how kind the weather has been to us today with a lovely, icemusic friendly -24°c and crystal clear skies.
After a week of brutal wind and heavy snowfall creating havoc with our venue construction and instrument creation, the sunset over Finse acting as a wondrous backdrop to two fantastic ice music concerts, was a sight to behold.
Congratulations to the whole team, from the amazing degree students from Norway's prestigious Faculty of Art, Music & Design, at the University of Bergen to the super talented musicians - Terje, Maria, Peter, Anders - who took on the challenge of making music. Tusen takk to the the crew of Finse 1222 Hotel, who've made us so welcome, and a very special mention & huge thanks to Even Rygg and Arild Sjåstad (Røde Kors) for bringing in the ice and audio equipment through extremely treacherous and arduous weather one snowmobiles from Haugastøl. EPIC.
Our legendary midnight concert is to come, followed by another concert tomorrow at 17hrs!
