A documentary film about the World's only festival of Ice Music, in which everything; the stage, instruments and auditorium, are made from snow and ice.

'Notes on Ice' is a documentary about the world's only Ice Music Festival, held in Geilo, Norway. Every year a group of eccentric musicians and ice carvers gather in the Norwegian mountains to create a truly unique event. All the instruments are created from wild ice, cut from frozen lakes. The stage and auditorium are sculpted from ice and snow. Amidst the great mass of globalised digital reproduction, this is music that is truly created in the moment; a blend of sound and place, man and nature, which hangs briefly in the cold night air before melting away into the darkness.........
