A man has spent two decades digging out an arctic cave and what he did with it is astonishing.
Colorado based Tim Linhart has the unusual profession of an ice sculptor and one day challenged himself to build a musical instrument – made entirely out of ice.
Pleased with the result, Tim decided to make more and more, but he decided he needed a residence for his magical creations.
He needed somewhere that would always be at freezing point so his instruments wouldn’t melt, which could only mean one thing.
An ice cave was needed. So he built one and spent the next twenty years doing it up.
After searching for the perfect spot, the innovator found a place in Lulea, Sweden, just below the arctic circle and promptly spent two decades carving out the cave.
He said in an interview:
It took me quite a while to understand that all of the tuning was a complete disaster – it was because of the temperature fluctuation.
That eventually led me to realising that I need to build my own architecture that can ventilate the heat from the audience, away from the orchestra.
Now all his hard work and decades of dedication have paid off, resulting in an underground ice cave, specifically for gigs and concerts, all made entirely out of ice.
Tim is now the proud founder of Ice Music, based in Sweden.
