it's the strangest noise ever. it's called a daxophone and as far as i can make out it seems to be some kind of wooden bowed instrument. there's more stuff on the inventor here (this does require flash) and a video clip of hans playing it here. some of his guitars are odd too.

please note that i have not accused anyone of anything as yet this year.

When my daughter was a toddler I made the mistake of playing Hans' album "Lower Lurum" (great, by the way). I was told quite emphatically to NOT play that music again. It features the daxophone in all it's otherworldly splendor.

There's also a good profile of the daxophone and its inventor in this book.

Personally, I'm getting tired of seeing Flash moving porthole dittys. They're getting to be as annoying as those stupid cursor trails that now permeate the web.

Spoon, your silence itself is an accusation :)

HTuttle : I meant to say when i gave the flash warning that it was rubbish flash...

Wild. I'm bookmarking that page in my drug binge folder.

There are some great archaic musical instruments here.

Don't miss the Theramin, complete with audio samples.
