Ice Music Festival Finse – 5 ledige rom


The world’s only Ice Music Festival since 2006! Finse 1222 is fully booked this weekend, therefore we recommend staying in Geilo and take the train to Finse. Be aware that there are limited numbers of tickets for each concert!

Friday Feb 2nd

17.00
Winter Songs: Terje Isungset (Ice Percussion),  Anders Jormin (Ice Bass), Maria Skranes (vocals). Music based on Isungset’s genre defining Ice Music album “Winter songs”. Duration 1 hour. NOK 395,-

22.00
Igloofonarium! What is this? An igloo made out of frozen water, and ice horns connected to the igloo from the outside. Inside the igloo you will find the audience only! Duration 20 minutes, as the weather gets very cold. NOK 175,-

24.00
The purest sound of ice – Ice Only!
A little meditation using Ice Percussion only. Expose yourself to the wintery sonics of Finse’s frozen lake, Finsevatnet – performed by Terje and some of his stellar students from talented Grieg Academy in Bergen. Terje will try the first sample of Hardangerjøkulen glacial ice too. Duration 30 mins as the weather gets very cold. Will the glacial ice make its debut? Book your tickets to find out. NOK 175,-

Saturday Feb 3rd

17.00
Glacier Speaks: we will try to make instruments out of the amazing 350m thick Hardangerjøkulen Glacier that overlooks the Finse plateau.

The amazing singer Berit Opheim (of Trio Mediaeval fame) will be performing with Anders and another Ice Music Festival favourite – Belgium’s Peter Paelinck, who will be teasing sound from an Iceridoo (yes, you read that correctly) and Iceflute. Duration 45 minutes.

To quote Peter «Sound was before everything, we are part of sound»…

The venue location will be approximately 100m from the world famous Finse 1222 Hotel which itself is situated right next to the train station platform – very important, as Finse is only accessible by train during the winter months.

Please note that the weather in Finse can be very cold, easily reaching -20ºC. The colder temperatures are perfect for the incredibly dynamic fragility of Ice Music because the colder the air temperature, the clearer the sound of Ice, which displays a far wider dynamic range. So seek out your warmest clothing and join us on a truly exotic aural journey!

Duration 45 minutes. NOK 375,-

Be aware that there are limited numbers of tickets for each concert!
