Edge2.152 Mostly organ

A few weeks ago at the Isstjärnan ice festival in Sweden, Arthur Elsenaar and Jeroen Meijer experimented with organ pipes build from blocks of ice. This resulted in an Arctic Drone Organ, large up to 4 meter high pipes resonating on the burst of computer-controlled gas flames. A highly paradoxical experiment as playing the organ at the same time would destroy it through the rapid melting of the ice. Powerful drones resonating around the 20 Hz primary harmonic.

Among a few other musics, mostly organ music this week; Apparat Organ Quartet from Iceland featuring 4 organist and 1 drummer.. what else was played? Listen in below to find out!
