Watch Bill Carve An Ice Instrument On TV Channel France 3

Last night France's second largest TV network France 3 aired a whole evening's programming themed around Lapland. Ice Music Festival 2013 featured within this coverage with clips from the concert and various stages of ice instrument preparation.

Click on the screen grab below to view some of these clips - including ice carving superhero Bill Covitz creating the world's first ice Balalaika (yes you read that right) and the result sounded extraordinary!

Ice Team member Emile Holba's photographs below the clip feature musician Svante Henryson standing proudly with his finished Ice Balalaika with the other showing a TV France 3 cameraman coping with the realities of filming in temperatures of -29ºc.
