This is so cool (hahafacepalmblink) I found a violin solo from the same project(  ) . He plays insanely beautiful. I would give my right ear to play as well as he does! Thanks for sharing @gwscheer

@Freq - Thanks for that video.  I wondered about the weight of an ice violin.  lol! Needs wire to support the weight?

@Schaick Yeah, I wondered about that as well :D I figured it had to hang from wires because it was so fragile, but the weight is most likely the cause.

@gwscheer No problem:) I was happy to share it. I hope the swedes will not find anything to do just yet. Maybe they will come up with more crazy projectsbanana
