This Team Sets Up A Giant Wooden Bridge In The Middle Of A Forest, But When They Roll THIS Across, I’m Stunned!

Quick, name something that starts with the letter ‘X!’ I bet 99% of you all thought ‘xylophone!’ Ever since we started to learn out ABC’s, we associated the letter ‘X’ with one obscure musical instrument. It’s not that we don’t understand what this instrument does, it’s that we haven’t been exposed to it as much as we probably should have.

It’s also an incredible piece of versatility. Anything can become a xylophone…even these little unassuming blocks of wood. That’s what this team of Japanese musicians decided to try in the middle of a forest. They designed and built an almost living xylophone that played on its own. Using gravity and a wooden ball, they were able to pluck out Bach’s Cantata 147 each time the wooden ball fell due to gravity and hit another block of wood.

This took intense preparation, and was shot in the winter in order to keep the wood from warping in the summer heat or due to excess moisture. This giant musical instrument is impressive, although I’m not too sure that the friendly woodland creatures really understood what was being done in their lovely forest home.

The video is showcasing the beauty of wood for a product, but the video itself is stunning and extremely well planned. I think this is amazing! I wish there were more musicians like this in the world!
