Jana Winderen



Ilulissat, Greenland, July 2007

In relation to the CD release on Ash International and the sound installation +4ºC - from Folgefonna to the North Sea, Jana travelled to Ilulissat in Greenland to record the moving icebergs and to use her hydrophones to record the sound of the melting and moving ice in the icefjord by Ilulissat and the calving of the inland ice further north in the Disco bay. This trip was also inspired by the stories of the sound of the moving ice told by members of the Verdensteateret.

Below you can find images and sounds form the field trip.
