The fragile glass armonica | Boing Boing:

The glass armonica, invented by none other than Benjamin Franklin (working with glassblower Charles James), produces ethereal sounds from friction on a series of extremely delicate nested glass bowls, which form a keyboard.

I’ve loved hearing these since I first heard about them… This is an excellent video covering the how and why of their operation.

Peppa Pig: Peppa’s Adventures: The Album Album Review | Pitchfork:

On My First Album, Peppa made a careful study of Brian Wilson’s sunny melodies and progressive pop structure. She hews closely to this formula throughout Peppa’s Adventures, particularly on the wistful “Perfect Day” and on “Recycling,” which evokes Fiona Apple in its percussive use of glass bottles and tin cans. Reaching further into pop’s past, she interpolates British and American folk music on the cheery “The School Bus Song” and the contemplative “Winter Days.”

All the images in this video are created by video feedback only – no computers are involved. The upper and lower monitors both display the same thing – the image from the camera, which is looking at the upper monitor. This creates a video feedback loop (much like a microphone next to a speaker creates an audio feedback loop).
