This is fascinating!

The idiom “skate on thin ice” usually means: danger—stop what you’re doing, or else. However, skating on thin, black ice is exactly what Swedish ice skating enthusiasts Henrik Trygg and Mårten Ajne love to do.

A photographer and filmmaker based in Stockholm, Trygg has made an art of capturing both the clear, black appearance of the ice, and the laser-like symphony of sounds created when an ice skater’s bodyweight passes over it. Ajne is a mathematician who has written books on the art and science of Nordic skating, featuring Trygg’s photographs. Both men have been skating for decades.

That's pretty neat! Wouldn't catch me out there... I can't skate, so I'd just fall on the ice, crack it and fall through.

No thanks. lol

It goes against everything you are taught about outdoor ice skating as a kid. Stay off the ice until it's thick enough to support re: 4" ++. Having said that, these folks know what they are doing, are carrying a pole or stick, and most likely are well aware of the depth of water that they are skating over. Those sounds are very whale-song-esque though, and most likely very therapeutic to boot. You do get sounds on all thicknesses of ice though and as tides change and water moves around underneath. The thicker ice, the more of a lower frequency the sound - as a rule. I've also heard some incredible sounds on thinly frozen over forest lakes - not created by any skater though but by the wind. Imagine the surface as a giant windchime and with December winds putting an angled force on the ice. Again, nothing like at all like I heard in that video but truly a unique sound/experience … in it's own way.
