Back to Ambience for the Masses.
Two waterproofed contact microphones were frozen inside an approximately 10'' x 10'' block of ice.

The ice was then submerged in water and the entire melting process recorded.

Part 2  (98K mpeg)
Two waterproofed contact microphones were frozen inside an approximately 10'' x 10'' block of ice.
It's, well, pretty much what you'd expect from the title. Mr. Olan took a microphone, froze it in a cube of ice, dropped it in a glass of water, and recorded the thawing process. So it basically sounds like you've just filled both of your ears with ginger ale. It's a very nice stereoscopic experience, and over the 17+ minutes it can get very effervescent at times. A very delightfully curious listening experience. Found it during a random search of Amoeba, and that's just about all I know about it (besides what them liner notes said).
