- In Living Ice, get a collection of naturally moving ice. Hear visceral cracks and syrupy gurgles. Hear laser-like chirps shooting and deep musical tones reverberating. Hear long ambiences of owls hooting in counterpoint with singing ice and ice dragons swimming beneath the frozen surface.
- This library offers you the sounds of a natural wonder only heard in perfect wintertime conditions. It was amazing to camp at the edge of this lake, hearing these amazing natural sounds as I drifted off to sleep. I hope you enjoy them too. Thanks for listening.

- In order to find living ice, you're generally looking for thin ice without snow on top.
- Next, you need a temperature swing that oscillated above and below freezing during day and night.
- If ice is naturally making sounds, it's caused by freezing, melting, or wind. This usually happens when the sun first hits the ice at dawn, just after sunset, or during a windstorm.
- The ice I found was cracking every few seconds, so I was scared to walk out on it more than a few meters. But I wanted to record from out in the middle of the lake! What to do?
- My solution as to tape my microphones to a DIY mount of tree branches, put my recorder in a dry bag, tie the dry bad to a long piece of rope, and slide the whole contraption out on the ice. It wasn't pretty, but worked incredibly well. I was able to slide the rig about 30 meters out onto the ice and was able to capture cracks, groans, booms, and laser-like chirps right under the mics!
