We will present to you the coolest, but also the strangest music instruments ever. You will able to see the art of sound or sound influence on different things. Sit back and enjoy.
The laser harp is a musical instrument made of light. A fan of beams shoots up from the floor into the night sky. The performer can create music by placing their hands in the beams. Not only does âbreakingâ the beam produce notes, but sliding the hand along the beam will also change the sound.
The harp does not produce any sound by itself, but creates MIDI data that can be connected to any modern synthesizer.
The laser harp concept was invented by Bernard Szajner and used extensively by Jean-Michel Jarre, and more recently Little Boots.
Music inspired by Nikola Tesla
A mix of extreme high voltage and tunes, does a project get any better! Steve Conner has posted his ultra cool visual instrument on 4HV.ORG. Note the second video was listed by EastVoltResearch and can be seen on this site.
âI finally gave in and decided to post footage of me testing my OMG super secret musical DRSSTC. I designed it last year as a paid commission for a Danish arts group who wanted a chorus of six musical coils that could be played by MIDI. I made a single prototype to test it here, but they ran six coils together in the final system, built by Finn Hammer over in Denmark.
What I made was an adaptor board that connected the internal tone generators on a Roland JX-8P synth to one or more DRSSTCs. The board converted the volume envelope to burst length, so the harder you pounded the keys, the bigger the sparks got. Hitting a high pitched note hard would blow the fuses, and the MIDI arrangements had to take this into account.â Via Makezine
The glass harmonica, also known as the glass armonica, bowl organ, hydrocrystalophone, or simply the armonica (derived from “harmonia,” the Greek word for harmony), is a type of musical instrument that uses a series of glass bowls or goblets graduated in size to produce musical tones by means of friction (instruments of this type are known as friction idiophones).
Because its sounding portion is made of glass, the glass harmonica is a crystallophone. The phenomenon of rubbing a wet finger around the rim of a wine goblet to produce tones is documented back to Renaissance times; Galileo considered the phenomenon (in his Two New Sciences), as did Athanasius Kircher.
The Irish musician Richard Poekrich is typically credited as the first to play an instrument composed of glass vessels by rubbing his fingers around the rims. Beginning in the 1740s, he performed in London on a set of upright goblets filled with varying amounts of water. During the same decade, Christoph Willibald Gluck also attracted attention playing a similar instrument in England.
Water Bottle Membranophone
This is an instrument much like a saxophone but made of a water bottle and a paper tube. You can see and download instructions of playing this instrument on Exploratorium.
This is one of the coolest things a have ever seen. And its 80 years old. Amazing thing you must confess.Â The theremin is an early electronic musical instrument controlled without contact from the player. It is named after its Russian inventor, Professor LÃ©on Theremin, who patented the device in 1928. The controlling section usually consists of two metal antennas which sense the position of the player’s hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) with the other, so it can be played without being touched. The electric signals from the theremin are amplified and sent to a loudspeaker.
The theremin is associated with a very eerie sound, which has led to its use in movie soundtracks such as Miklos Rozsa’s for Spellbound and The Lost Weekend and Bernard Herrmann’s for The Day the Earth Stood Still and as the theme tune for the ITV drama Midsomer Murders. Theremins are also used in concert music (especially avant-garde and 20th- and 21st-century new music) and in popular music genres such as rock. Psychedelic Rock bands in particular, such as Hawkwind, have often used the theremin in their work.
The Art Of Sound
Table that ressonates with sound causing sand to form patterns that look almost liquid when they change form.
This is a display at a local science museum. The iron filings (the fuzzy stuff) is sticking to a array of electromagnets that are set to respond to different frequencies. When the music is played the filings dance.
Dancing Dust Iron Flakes move to sound at the Arizona Science Center.

A fainting goat is a breed of domestic goat whose muscles freeze for roughly 10 seconds when the goat is startled. Though painless, this generally results in the animal collapsing on its side. The characteristic is caused by a hereditary genetic disorder called myotonia congenita. When startled, younger goats will stiffen and fall over. Older goats learn to spread their legs or lean against something when startled, and often they continue to run about in an awkward, stiff-legged shuffle. Continue reading

Why do people choose a particular brand of commercial varieties? The biggest secret of advertising is discovering the motive for buying. Here are some examples of how global brands look for the true reasons for buying their products through trial and error and thenÂ use small advertising tricks to boost sales.
The first Snickers chocolate bars in RussiaÂ appeared in 1992 presented as a snack that can replace a complete meal. For a long time, aÂ consumer from formerÂ SovietÂ Russia could not get used to the fact that they could eat chocolate instead of soup for dinner, and bought a Snickers as a “sweet with tea.” Once the agency BBDO Moscow advertised the product as the real thing for teens who love sweets and do not like soup, the popular bar sales went through the roof.
Brandy, rum and gin were very popular in London in the late 19 th century . Promoting whiskey, therefore, was not easy. Thomas Dewar, the co-founder of ancestral brand, chose a surprising strategy.
He hired fake shoppers who visited various pubs and required whiskey Dewar’s. Naturally, it was not available, and they left. After several parishes Dewar himself appeared at the bar and offered to sign a contract on the supply of whiskey.
In 1892, Thomas Dewar went on a trip around the world. Over the period of two years he visited 26 countries, and the company began working in 1932. The sales increased by 10 times. Tommy Duhart wrote his famous book “A Walk Around the World.”

The photo in which the Soviet leader is holding the cup with the PepsiÂ logo had been on the pages of newspapers and advertising journals for a long time. That fateful moment in the history of the brand is considered a “Happy Birthday” Pepsi in Russia.
AnÂ interesting trick was also used for theÂ cigarette brand Parliament. Initially, its price was lower than their main competitor, Marlboro, and sales were fairly modest. Parliament cigarettes were in the low-price category and few consumers appreciated their exclusive filter. Then, a year later, their priceÂ becameÂ higher than Marlboro, hitting a niche “premium”, which happened because of their different filter.
Founder of the biggest store chain Woolworth have found the correct insight that allowed him to forge millions. Shy and stammering young man from a village in the age of 21, settled as assistant seller in a small shop. In that time the price of goods in the stores, placed on the counter for the seller, was not shown. Seller “by eye” determined the richness of the buyer, and called its price. Further, the buyer Â trade, or buy. Poor Frank didn’t know how to do that. He was so afraid that one day even fainted while he worked. Because of that, a shop owner fired him. Before opening the store Frank attached to the lowest possible price onÂ paper Â (a prototype of the modern price tag). The whole sticker, dumped in a warehouse, he put on a huge table, and attach the plaque with the inscription “All five cents.” Â He placed table near a window so that the goods and the plate was visible from the street. Shaking with fear, he waited for customers by hiding behind the counter. All goods are sold out for several hours. Frank retired from the owner, took the money and opened his own shop. In 1919, the Woolworth empire consisted of thousands of shops, and a personal fortune of Frank was about 65 million.
Guinness World Records
The famous and best-selling (after the Bible) “Guinness World Records” is nothing more than a publicity stunt invented by the Managing Director of Guinness Brewery, Sir Hugh Bivero.

This is where the Beaver started this unfolding debate about the “most-most.” And he decided that he should create a book that will contain the records officially confirmed in various fields. Years was spent on research, and in August 27, 1955 everything was ready for the first book on 198 pages.

Mae West, Hollywood star,Â Â was hired as an advertising person. PackingÂ of cigarettes was also made for ‘The ladies’ audience: a filter with a stripe of red serve. It has a dual purpose: to hide sloppy trail of lipstick and to protect women’s white teeth from yellowing. But no matter how they tried, product was not enough attractive to women: people had Â a painful dry cough. Therefore, in order to survive in the market after two decades, the brand had to change their sex. In order to change the perception of cigarettes with filter, as a product “for girls”, Philip Morris has hired one of the best American specialists on advertising – Leo Burnett, which coined the image of “Cowboy – tamer of the prairie.” Cowboy – the embodiment of American spirit – touched a consumers. Posters of these heroes of America – brutal guys, the likes of wild steppes, was a huge success. They conquered all – men and women, black and Latino.

In addition, boxes of Red Bull were distributed free to students on college campuses. Red Bull was especially popular on collage and, later, parties because it has ben discovered he it made a perfect drink mixed with Â vodka. Thus were born a new and hugely popular cocktail Vodka Red Bull.
Rumor has it that the so-called casual fridays, when you can depart from the strict dress code, adopted in large companies and change the official costume for casual clothes, came up with P & G for promotional purposes. In the 80 years of 20 century the world’s largest company P & G has been the market leader in washing powders in the USA. But, despite the high advertising activity, market share does not want to grow. The company then conducted a study and evaluate the market care for clothing. In percentage terms it was found out that the powder used in 65% of cases, and dry cleaning – 35%. Further, the company found that 70% of washing powder are employed and 5 of 7 days a week, go to the suits that they give to the dry cleaners. Furthermore, joint research P & G and Levi Strauss Jeans showed that employees in their everyday clothes are much more creative and efficient people. And what have they done? P & G within the company introduces the right to go to job on Fridays in everyday clothes. This Â efforts of both companies received huge coverage in the press, and many corporations have followed.

Tefal has long believed that the primary motivation for buying a frying pan with teflon coating is that the preparation of these pans do not require spending a single gram of oil. However, subsequently it became clear that the main incentive for their purchase was the fact that the pan Â is very easy to clean because food does not stick to their surface. Content of the advertising campaign then has been changed and that greatly increased its effectiveness.
In the early 1980′s Timberland Company went through difficult time. It produced high-quality court shoes, and the price was lower than the industry-leading companies Topsiders. It seemed that a good product and low price should be a wining combination, but things went bad. Then, Â Timberland took a very simple solution: they raised their prices, so those are much greater than the prices offered by Topsiders. Sales have increased dramatically. That confirms the authenticity of statements by David Ogilvy, “The higher the price, the more desirable it becomes good in the eyes of the buyer.”
