Odd Music

Ever heard of a musical instrument called the Amazing Pencilina? The Fire Organ? The Beer Bottle Organ? Ever wonder what would happen if you crossed a bodhrán with a didjeridu? Neither did I.

But today, one of my ethno pals and I were online trying to look up a picture of an instrument called a Hang, which looks like a cross between a steel drum and a UFO and sounds like a harp. We found the Hang and many more wonderful creations at The Odd Music Gallery. Most of the instruments listed have sound clips, for the full experience of the Uncello, the Glass Armonica, and a seven-foot-tall saxophone.

I have to take Organology in the spring. I am so bringing this website to class.
