Talented Percussionists Make Beautiful Music Upon the Frozen Waters of Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia


In 2012, talented percussionists from the Irkutsk, Russia group Ethnobeat gathered together in -20 Celsius weather, 6 hours from their home, in order to make beautiful music upon the frozen waters of Lake Baikal. The Siberian lake is known as the oldest, deepest and clearest lake in the world, which made for a beautiful array of sound as the ice was drummed, cleared and smashed. The idea for the project came from a small accident, per the Siberian Times.

The wife of one of our drummers, Sergei Purtyan, slipped and fell down, and as she landed on the ice, she made a very musical ‘boooooom’ sound – so nice and deep that her husband, who has a very good ear, said ‘Hold on, what was it? How did you make that noise?’ She laughed but then got curious, too, and they started touching and drumming on the bits of ice, realising it was making a melody. He recorded it on the phone, got back to Irkutsk and let us listen, asking if we might want to go together to the same spot and try and record our ice drumming.

Lexus has created what it claims is the world’s most advanced hoverboard. Engineers at Japanese car company Lexus have been working with experts in super-conductive technology to create one of the most advanced hoverboards the world has ever seen. The website states that “the Lexus Hoverboard uses magnetic levitation to achieve amazing frictionless movement. Liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets combine to allow Lexus to create the impossible.” The prototype is being tested in Barcelona in the coming weeks. The sad news is, the Lexus Hoverboard is only a prototype, so will not be for sale. “It’s the perfect example of the amazing things that can be achieved when you combine technology, design and imagination,”said Mark Templin, executive vice president of Lexus International.
