Being in the music program at UL I always enjoy seeing some classical pieces being used in media today.

This advertisement for a "Touch Wood SH-08C" uses Bach’s Cantata 147, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring. The name might not ring a bell, but once you give it a listen, i'm sure you'll recognize it!

The song is played on hundreds of individual pieces of wood. The pieces were cut and placed to make different pitches as a ball rolled down the track and struck each piece of wood.

Just seeing this, and the amount of effort they put into this, makes me really geeked up! Maybe it's just cause i'm a band nerd.

Check it out!
