Overly Complicated Ice Cube Marimba

Taking the glass harmonica a step further

This all takes place in a freezer set to 25°F.

A line of double-wall glass vessels from 1’ to 4’ tall are set into holes in a marimba-like stand. The vessels are much like white wine glasses, but they are double-walled and the ‘stem’ is hollow all the way down, sometimes 2 to 3’. Alcohol is precisely added to each ‘flute’ for lack of a better word, and a specially-shaped ice cube, for lack of a better word, is added to the alcohol so that it will act as a striker on the walls of the double-walled flute.

The player creates the sound by moving the bottom of each flute so that the floating striker wiggles against the inside of the double-walled vessel in time to their playing. A haunting, cool, and unapproachable ambience is produced for the audience, which is freezing its ass off.

       The problem with this device is that it will drift wildly out of tune very quickly as the alcohol is guzzled

       Must I measure in Fahrenheit?

       No it's comfortably at room temperature to allow for the ice cube to melt gracefully and add a subtle to the alcohol so that its flavour can be as you sip it.

       Yes. Link.
