A sound-echo performance under the 30 metre high ice-face of the Canada glacier, located in Taylor Valley, Dry Valleys, Antarctica. The event consists of simple performer tasks - walking cycles, voice shouts and stone bangs producing echo-effects off the glacial ice-wall. The event was realised at 00.30am, with the assistance of an 8 member research team based in the valley during the summer phase of continuous daylight.
