Description

The glass armonica is truly one of the strangest musical instruments in the world. Invented by founding father Benjamin Franklin, the concept is the same as rubbing the tip of your finger around a wine glass to make a sound. Franklin took that concept and turned it on it's side, nesting about 50 glass bowls inside each other, allowing it to be played like a piano. In this video, Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts graduate student Jake Schlaerth introduces us to the unique sounds of the glass armonica.
