Glass Armonica

One of my Husband's passions in life is technology, especially computers. So he is always finding all sorts of neat and unusual things related to music from the world wide web to share with me. This week's is the Glass Armonica. This instrument was the brainchild of one of our founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin. The sound it produces is quite clear and crisp. It has an ethereal quality that was said to make people go mad or enter into a state of melancholy. All of the dangers from playing this instrument have been proven false unless you are playing one made of lead glass. There is a small chance you might get lead poisoning. For more on the Glass Armonica check out Wikipedia.
