I could watch this perfect performance again and again. Mesmerizing!

One thing that worries me: clearly the musician must have spent hours “tuning” the wine glasses by adding or subtracting until he had just the right amount of water. But water evaporates! So, unless he has a … ahem … water-tight way of storing his “instrument”, every time he performs he has to go through the same laborious process again.

I had known that people did this, but never seen a performance. In collecting this from YouTube, I saw that there are other performances by the same gentleman, and other performers. Just enter “glass harp.”
