Quotes

Wayne Lytle: [at the end of the Drum Machine commentary] As with all of our environments, there's an extent to which this approximates some reality and another extent to which it violates physics in our universe. In this case, even though the structure may look somewhat physically plausible, I suspect that if you build this thing, it just might collapse under its own weight.

Brilliant trip into an almost real world of music
27 December 2004 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

Like many others, I first saw one of the segments of this DVD as a short on PBS. The scene depicted a musical "instrument" consisting of steel balls fired out of tubes and landing on piano wires, drums, moving xylophone bars, etc., bouncing off, and landing in cups to be recycled.

For most of the first time I saw this, I was awestruck that anyone could build such a precision machine. Well, April Fools on me. They can't (of course). But it's that real.

The other scenes show equally beautiful, though less plausible, instruments, playing gorgeous rock/classical fusion music.

Worth a look.
