This amazing kinetic art in Japan’s woodlands of Kyushu is a commercial for- well, you’ll see... but suffice to say it is amazing and you’ll want to watch it twice and if your monkeys are anything like mine- maybe thrice.
Done by Drill Inc, a Japanese advertising agency it features a wooden ball going down a marimba. The sound that you hear is not superimposed but rather naturally produced.
I love that the product is made from only discarded wood, I love that the beauty of the forest is enhanced with the natural marimba and I love the melody of Bach’s Cantata 147: Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.
The instrument was made by Kenjiro Matsuo at Invisible Design Lab.
Dare you to watch it once!
