Xylophone in Japanese Forest
« on: April 22, 2011, 07:08 PM »
Listen to Bach's Cantata 147, "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" like you've never heard it before.


Lot's of time went into this ... for a Touch Wood SH-08C ad.

Just think of all the time they went through in order to assemble the pieces necessary for a wooden ball to trickle down a homegrown marimba, particularly in the midst of Kyushu, Japan's woodlands. Kenjiro Matsuo was responsible for the creation of the instrument, while Morihiro Harano is being handed credit for the idea itself; in fact, he confirmed to The New York Times that no artificial music was added whatsoever, with only the background levels being adjusted up for effect.
