Who knew human hair could be used as violin strings?
If you have long flowing, silky-smooth hair that would rival the likes of Rapunzel and Thor, you can now become part-man, part-violin. At the Street Musician’s Day in Lithuania, artist Tadas Maskimovas demonstrated that anyone – or anything, rather – can be used to make good music. Even hair!
To make hair playable, they clumped it together to form the correctly-sized strings, then applied glue to make it more resistant. They then attached the strings of hair to the violin and proceeded to make great music.
