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.
