The Void

The ramblings of an insane mind.

Glass Harp an instrument to think about.

Bach’s Famout Toccata and Fugue. The famous score use in the “Phantom of the opera”, Played on a Glass Harp by Instrumentalist Robert Tiso.  This is followed by Hungarian dance No. 5 by Johannes Brahms.

This is a performance which highlights not only the music, but the Musician. Unlike someone who plays a more popular instrument like a guitar, piano, violin or whatever, this musician had to create his instrument first.
Each note has to be laid out with each goblet. Then each crystal goblet will be tuned individually by adding or subtracting water. A pattern for each octave would have to be laid out upon the table and secured.
Then the music pours out of this musician.Although this is a video with an unusual instrument, the musician’s instinct provides a classic example of what makes a true musician, and not some manufactured performer. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
