MELT is composed of recordings of different stages of ice melting, moving from violent sounds of ice caps grinding against each other, to trickling sequences and flows of water. MELT traces how water moves through different aggregate phases, from solid to liquid, changing the combination of molecules irrevocably.
It is both an image for constant flow and change, and for how human actions affect the world surrounding us.

All sounds were recorded in Greenland by Kirkegaard in 2013 and 2015
