Inside a giant igloo in a snowy Norwegian village, the sound of a horn rings out, warming the mood of a freezing audience, huddled together in -24C. The four musicians performing are even colder, as the instruments they're playing are all made of ice.The xylophone, claves and wind instruments have been painstakingly carved from ice blocks extracted from a frozen lake, and are now part of a finger-numbing performance at the 13th Ice Music Festival in the mountain village of Finse.The only problem with the form is, the longer the musicians play, the more the instruments tend to disintegrate. After the festival, some of the instruments do become nearly nothing again, the ice dripping away back into the earth.
