Playable Musical Instruments Made Entirely of Ice

All Ice Records in the only record company in the world dedicated to music made entirely of ice (probably not the most competitive niche of music to be honest). The range of instruments that can be created from ice is surprisingly vast:
Iceofon, Ice Harp, Ice Horn, Ice trumpet, Ice percussion and an Ice bass drum carved from one block of ice. Even the stage they play on and music stands are carved from the ice. The instruments are carved with saws and knives and must be free of any air bubbles. Norway’s Terje Isungset came up with the concept and it has spread to an entire record label’s worth of music. The sound of ice instruments is actually very calming (when played correctly). Here’s a short video about a ice instrument live concert:
