Transcript

[SOUND OF THE ICE PACK SHIFTING]
GELLERMAN: With much of the country sweltering in a heat wave, we leave you this week at Kangia Icefjord in Greenland
[SOUND:“Energy Field”, Jana Winderen, Track 2, Isolation]

GELLERMAN: The pack ice shifts and squeaks, as it floats on the frigid water. Jana Winderen used a hydrophone to record the fjord. She calls this track 'Isolation/Measurements' on her CD “Energy Field.” In her liner notes, she writes it wasn't till later that she saw a sign on the shore - “Do not enter – extreme life danger” - a warning that tipping icebergs can create tsunami waves.
