In a watery medley titled Langjökull, Snæfellsjökull, Solheimajökull, Katie Paterson created music out of glacier ice and then played them until they melted. The poetry behind this? Now that they are melted, this is the only documentation that glacier's even existed. How delightfully hipster, Katie Paterson!

You can listen to the watery sounds here.

Implications - While music may have gone digital, many are hoping to hold on to the mediums that existed before MP3s took over. Mainstream and indie bands continue to release physical formats of their albums to cater to those who want the best sound quality when listening to music. Even though it's important for brands to churn out new ideas, they should never neglect the charms of retro aesthetics that are still memorable to this day.
