We came across this video of a skilled street performer in Venice playing a “glass harp” at Geekologie, and it was shared to YouTube by Hashem AL-ghaili. It’s not just that this musician plays a wonderful version of the song with an unusual “instrument,” it’s how perfectly the tone of it works with the feel of the song. Truth be told, if I walked by a world-class, virtuoso pianist or violinist playing “Hedwig’s Theme,” I’d be impressed. But to witnessed someone performing the song on a bunch of wine glasses? I’d freak out like they had just created actual magic. This is what it usually takes to perform the song live:
Fantastic, but we bet not one of those world-class musicians can play the glass harp. [mpx_video type=”editorial” guid=”34f5fc4ae0312ea4f45a9292166fd47ae474caae”]
