I've aways found this so hauntingly beautful.

I'd love for someone to write me a song using nothing but glass and a saw. Better yet, I'd like to do it myself. As a little kid, I knew a 90 year old woman that could play the bejebus out of a saw and I always found it so fascinating. I don't think I had ever heard one again after she died till the first time I saw One Flew Over the Cuckoos' Nest and instantly recognized the sound in the theme song.

This one is badass as well; The Aquasonic Waterphone. Wish I knew someone with one of these too.

* I came across the word glass harmonica in the book I'm reading today and realized I hadn't thought of that instrument in forever, so I had a minor you tube crack-out. Just wanted to share. :)

I think that I could probably write you a song with glass and a saw... But you'd hear screams from murder victims more than music.

That works too.
