Weird & Wonderful: A Hydraulophone Plays Greensleeves

Read next

In honor of International Strange Music Day, we thought you and the kiddos would enjoy this lovely rendition of Greensleeves played on the hydraulophone, aka the H2O organ or sometimes called the water flute. Sound is generated via direct contact with water, and water is projected through holes much like air creates sound in a flute. The hydraulophone was invented by Steve Mann, and is used as a sensory device for people with low vision.
