Glassophone

By David

 

 

 

 

The name is the Glassophone, and the family is percussion. I chose materials that were at home. I have a percussion and you can hit it.

I used a box, stick, paint, glass, string, water, and food coloring. First, I cut a box. Second, I drank Snapples. Third, I put string on a stick. Fourth, I put food coloring in the water. Last, I put the bottles on the string.

 

 

It has to be hit by a stick, or by hand. You have to hit it to change pitch or volume, because I have different amounts of water in the bottles.

I learned that the more water I put in the bottles, the more sound I get. I enjoyed painting the box gold and black.
