Tim Linhart was an ice sculptor in Colorado. One day he carved an upright string bass from ice and was astonished at the beautiful sound it made. Now he is the founder of Ice Music, based in Swedish.

Tim Linhart from New Mexico USA made his first frozen instrument sitting on top of a mountain 20 years ago and became almost immediately enchanted—not only by the idea— but by the sound it made while playing it. This magical feeling empowered Tim to create something mind blowing worth visiting.

“I plucked on the wires and I heard the sound coming out from inside the instrument. “And I was so excited by what I heard that I put on my skis and skied all the way down to the village and told them what had happened to me and how excited I was. They pretty much thought I was a kook. Well, on that day I sort of had a dream – a vision of what could one day become. Welcome to my dream.”

The magical cave is fitted so it glows in all the colors of the rainbow. More interestingly, the instruments made of ice are not only there to be admired, but people can actually listen to the sound the instruments produce in the concerts that take place inside the frozen hall.

Inside the hall—which Tim dubbed Ice Music— people can choose from a range of different musical events such as rock, classical and pop concerts.

The average temperature inside this magical Igloo is -5 degrees Celsius. Ice Music suggests its visitors should dress properly: at least three layers of clothing, plus a hat and gloves.
