Lego Harpsichord

Henry Lim, a musician and Lego-fanatic, build himself an instrument. From his page you can see that he already was doing 2d pictures, and even a full size statue of Queen Amidala , but this time he started out building a Grand piano. Due to the enormous amount of pressure a grand piano takes from the tension of 88 strings he figured a Harpsichord would be a more reasonable goal.

Lego-Ukelele
Lego-Hammond organ (easy because it is just the case, the rest is electrical)
Lego-tuba
Lego-gameboy daw…hmmm

Check his page for more pictures, the whole production process and audio-clips of the instrument.

    Kun je misschien proberen iets minder te glunderen? :P
    Deze situatie is heel erg slecht voor je workflow…. Kunstenaars moeten namelijk lijden, bloeden, en zweten… Nu zal het met het zweten wel goed zitten, maar ala.

  3. Dat liedje van die gezonken boot met die fluiten is ons favoriete liedje. Mag zeker ook niet!
