I was browsing around youtube (actually, I was watching videos about harpsichords) and I came across this video:
(In case the link doesn’t work, search “fluid piano” on youtube.)
The harp gets a very brief mention, but I thought, what if it could be constructed with pedals to move the stops? Much like how a lever harp has been developed into a pedal harp.
What do you think? Does an instrument like this have real potential, or do you think it is a “passing fancy?” There are many designs of instruments that didn’t really catch on, which I think are fascinating.
I was surprised at the amount of negative comments this video got (Beware, there is vulgarity).
Anyway, I just thought it was interesting. 🙂
