This album is the result of DJ Spooky's art residency at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Of Water and Ice is a composition for string quartet and video that evolved out of his large-scale multimedia work Sinfonia Antarctica: an exploration of the composition of ice and water, and
our relationship to the vanishing environment of the arctic poles. DJ Spooky created The Book of Ice based on his travels to the poles.
All of the electronic sounds are generated by interpretations of either algorithms that mirror the geometry in ice crystals or the math of climate change data.
