As part of my daughter’s homework, she recently did a science experiment at home involving a few glasses of water and a little side dish of vinegar. In a few short minutes, she was absolutely mesmerized at the sounds that resonated from the glass cups when she gently brushed each glass rim with her vinegar laced fingers.
It was quite the eye opener.
Fast forward to today and I stumble upon 2 musicians from Poland called “The Glass Duo” performing Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy on a glass harp.
No, I don’t mean a harp made out of glass. I’m talking about a gabillion different glasses laid out on a table, each resonating specific notes to bring the song to life. It was absolutely mind blowing to watch Glass Duo performing their magic. I showed the video to my daughter and she was equally spellbound. So simple, yet so intricately difficult. I can’t even begin to imagine the number of hours it took for Glass Duo to perfect this song.
Things to do: take a moment out of your busy day today and watch the video. It might just be the best thing you’ve ever done on a Tuesday!
