The Kid Should See This

Glass through Glass by Alexander Chen

Some of our favorite instruments are made from things around the house and the sound of water in drinking glasses is a great example. Glass through Glass is a composition by Google Creative Director Alexander Chen, who recorded the video’s layers with Google Glass. Bonus: We’ve enjoyed Alexander’s work here before.

Related watching: Reggie Watts in improvised layers, more videos of glass (the material), and the magic of glass harps.
