Regular price $99.00 USD




  • In Living Ice, get a collection of naturally moving ice. Hear visceral cracks and syrupy gurgles and glugs. Hear laser-like chirps shooting and deep musical tones reverberating. Hear long ambiences of owls hooting in counterpoint with singing ice and sounds that Andy and I could only describe as "the ice dragon".
  • 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 sounds as we drifted off to sleep. We hope you enjoy them too. Thanks for listening.
