(YouTube)   Is this a "glass armonica" [sic], or is it a gigantic slimy mutant silverfish singing a wailing call to the Old Ones in a cruelly twee satanic creche?   (youtube.com) divider line

I have made some bad choices in life, but none of them involved a career of squeaking a bunch of glass bowls with a wet fingertip.

No recording comes close to how amazing one of those sounds live.
 
2021-12-01 9:30:29 PM  
That's really neat.

That is a really amazing sound.

Very cool.

I saw some players on the bridge in Prague back in 1999 and was just enchanted by it.  Was thinking about how it was almost like the synthesizer for the 1700's.

I bet that guy gets an A+ in foreplay.

What a glass armonica might sound like backing three legends:

Why "[sic]"?  Glass armonica is the name originally given to it by Franklin.

Gawain: Why "[sic]"?  Glass armonica is the name originally given to it by Franklin.


So the mods wouldn't redlight it for wrongly spelling harmonica, or people not clicking it because they don't want to listen to harmonicas that can't even get the letter H right.

With all that hand scrubbing and alcohol spray, his fingers are likely like sandpaper dildos.

Is this a "glass armonica" [sic],[sic]

Yes, it is an armonica (no need for the word 'glass' really, as there is no other kind of armonica.).

That was much cooler than I was expecting.

I wish you could buy one, even a smaller one for a reasonable price.  I looked for them a while back and its a basically nonexistent instrument to find, touch, play.  One of the coolest sounding things ever though.  I just want to try it.

especially since the whole thing could be redone with a electronic keyboard now. you'd be able to play it much easier, be able to play songs the OG version could not and you wouldn't live in fear of it shattering.

Except it couldn't. The result you would get would be the equivalent of a really nice print verses an original piece of art.

Benjamin Franklin invented that dude's mustache during a brainstorming session about the Constitution. Probably doodled it on a pic of Jefferson he found on a pamphlet about the king's wheat tax or some shiat. Tax this soup strainer, Georgey boy. Kapow.

oh yeah sure.  Time and time again there have been studies showing event "experts" can't differentiate expensive from cheap wine or the sound of a strat from a modern violin but you keep telling yourself you're the exception, just like everyone else.

Keep telling yourself that. You are right that many can't. You are 100% wrong to belive that means nobody can.

And way to show how little you know about science by believing that a "study" that shows some people can't tell the difference between two things means nobody can tell the difference from any two random things.

GOOD JERB!
