Composer David Hilowitz, has previously blown the internet and musician’s mind after perfectly building a very unique violin. He constructed the violent out of a broken spring reverb tank from an old Fender.
Using this unique way created an warm reverberation and fullness to any passage he played. He said, “The thing about this particular reverb tank is it’s broken. It came out of an old fender amp and for whatever reason, its input had stopped working. …I got to thinking, what if we use the vibrations of an acoustic instrument? In this case a violin.”
But the talented musicians isn’t done wowing the world of music. Hilowitz recently created a spinning music sequence by only using a kid’s science kit, adorable cat-eared headphones, some bits of foil and off course a bicycle wheel.
“In this video, I combine a children’s science kit with a bicycle wheel, resulting in a makeshift music sequencer.”
Hilowitz used the jacks of the kit to create several notes and homemade sensors with aluminum foil. After setting up that Hilowitz figured out how to change the arrangement in order to create a short song that repeated as the wheel spun.
He said, “So that’s really cool but let’s try changing the sequence a bit. Of course if we want the notes to play at different times …since each jack corresponds to a different note we can just change which cable is plugged into which jack and get a completely different sequence, of course, with the same rhythm.”
