Frost Beat / by Charles Martin

In May 2014, while I was travelling through Boston, I had the chance to embark on a mini-tour with Maria Finkelmeier as part of ArtWeek Boston, in between our mallet duo and iPad concerts, we played two nights of experimental music for ice and percussion at the Frost Bar called Frost Beat!

Along with glass artist Sarah Cohen, Maria froze up a percussion section of glass chimes, bars and blocks for us to perform on, I brought along some computer music know how and we performed sets of improvised music for the fascinated customers!

Here's some great images courtesy of Mark Landsberg and a video Maria put together of our concerts!

Since this concert, Maria has put together ANOTHER Frost Beat night with Amy Garapic. Hopefully I'll get to come back sometime and make some more ice music!
