The Green Life: Xylophone Plays Bach by Itself in the Woods

Xylophone Plays Bach by Itself in the Woods


We're not sure what to make of this video. On the one hand, Kenjiro Matsuo at Invisible Designs — who made the giant xylophone — must've spent a whole lot of time designing an instrument that could conceivably play the theme of Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" by itself. Also, that the little wooden ball doesn't fall off is amazing. On the other hand, the fact that this is an advertisement for a phone almost ruins it. And the phone is called the Touch Wood SH-08C — which, as one YouTuber points out, is a very unfortunate name. Make of it what you will. At the very least, one can appreciate the scenery of the woods in Kama, which is located in Fukoka — the southernmost island of Japan.
