Audio recordings of calving ice

David Vaughan - UKRI BAS

Greetings Cryo-folk!


I’ve been asked to reach out to the glaciological community by an artist who is creating an installation which should be exhibited the next Venice Biennale.  His work is ambitious and, for me, very exciting.  He is set on building a physical installation that will re-create the sound of ice calving from glaciers.  Although, it’s not for me to make public his plans, I can say, I have heard his initial effort, and it is truly impressive!


His next step will be to ‘tune’ his ‘instrument’ to make it as realistic and evocative as possible.  This means tuning it to the sound of the real thing.  For that reason, I’d be very keen to hear about any recordings that anyone would care to share with the artist. 


If you have any recordings of glaciers calving, particularly as heard from relatively nearby.  It would be great to hear from you.


Best regards from lockdown-UK.
