The Sound of Ice

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA– (By Dia Felix and Wayne Grim) Terje Isungset is one of Europe’s most accomplished and innovative percussionists. With over two decades experience in jazz and Scandinavian music his work travels far beyond traditional boundaries. He’s become more like a cross between a sound artist and a shaman. Isungset crafts his own instruments from natural elements found in Norway such as arctic birch, granite, slate and even ice. We interviewed Terje as part of the Exploratorium Audio Salon series.
