This Is How A Record Made Of Ice Sounds Like

As if we didn't have enough with frightening planetary sounds, artist Katie Paterson has recorded the crackling sound of three Icelandic glaciers. Nothing special there... until you learn that she did it on 45rpm records made of actual ice.

Katie pressed the record using ice instead of vinyl, playing them in two turntables until they melted over the course of two hours. [Katie Paterson via I'm Revolting via Today and Tomorrow]
