    Weird Instrument

    I just wondered what anybody thought of this strange instrument. I haven't seen it before.

    I thought I counted eight sets of playable strings(fretboarded and harp) - totally weird - it'll be quite the sophisticated control mechanism to accomplish that.

    This is from a series called animusic. This program was on PBS at one
    time and it was weird but interestingly amazing.

    Nothing flesh and blood about that little baby that's for sure ... just someone (an animator) with far too much time on his/her hands.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    This is a video where someone used a musical robot with strings to make
    the music. I like it.

    It looks as if it was from a Tim Burton movie. I like the music though, does anyone know it?

    Yes the music is nice, but I'm afraid I don't know what it is.

    Here is another strange instrument.

    Isn't it amazing what other countries can do with their computers with
    keyboards and other musical instruments attached along with video.
    Even Musicalis has a virtual organ I can't for the life of me get started
    because my computer and my limited brain can only do so much. I wished
    there was a way to program this xp. I used to create music with basic
    programing now there's xp and vista that can't be programed.

    Yes, I know what you mean Judy. Some people are very clever with computers, I just know how to use one and leave the clever stuff to other people.
