I recorded ice cubes of different sizes, large and small ice blocks to make crackling, breaking, twisting, sizzling, swirling, chipping, smashing, dropping, and shaking sounds.
Several types of tools were used to chip and break different sized ice blocks such as kitchen knives, hammers, rubber mallets, and ice picks. A hot iron was used to melt ice blocks, ice cubes were stepped on to make crushing and walking sounds. There several recorded sounds of ice cubes in glass and plastic cups combined with water. Plastic ice trays of freshly frozen ice were twisted, turned, and recorded in several different ways. These are just handful of examples of the many familiar sounds of ice that are included in this sound library.
