Finnish street performer creates a magical sound from an instrument made entirely from glass bottles


Who knows that recycled glass bottles can be turned into a wonderful musical instrument?

Fedor Grigorev has become a full-time street performer since 1999.

Unlike other typical street performers who tend to showcase their musical talent with instruments like guitar and violin, he shows off his unique talent by playing xylophone made entirely from glass bottles

The unique glass bottle xylophone not only creates a magical sound, it also sounds wonderfully similar to a real xylophone!

In the clip, it can be seen that he hangs the glass bottles to a plastic pipe with a rope. Each bottle is filled with a different amount of water inside of it, making them producing different pitch and sound

The science behind it is the less water inside of the bottle, the higher the pitch it will produce.
