History of Glass Music
The Verrophone (French: verre = glass), consisting of
vertically arranged glass tubes, is played with moist
fingers on the upper edge as with the "musical glasses".
Due to its surprisingly loud sound and precise tone effect,
the verrophone represents a better complement to modern
orchestra instruments than the soft-sounding historical
glass harmonica. Verrophones are already used in many
areas of contemporary music.
Because of the slight distances between the tubes,
polyphonic chords are playable.
