This is the link to his homepage: http://www.hanginbalance.com/ His cool Youtube page: http://www.youtube.com/hedgemonkeya Go to my channel for more videos! http://www.youtube.com/user/Andyax/featured I found this guy playing along "Karl Johan" street in Oslo (Norway) with an unbelievable instrument! The sound coming out from that thing was amazing. I have never seen anything like this before. Update: Thanks for the comments that explained the instrument. It's called PANArt Hang. The guy playing this Hang is called Daniel Waples :)

  1. I be the keeps his weed in there :)
  2. No, this guy caught a rare Musical Spaceship. Its been known to be the Almighty Musical UFO. LOL
  3. He stole that thing at Shitty Wok, South Park
  4. This instrument is called a Hang Drum. It's a new modern instrument hand made in Switzerland and it costs 1500€ because they don't make many .
  5. So, you may have seen one of these already. The Hang (yes, that's what it's called) is probably my favorite new instrument (it was developed in 2000). It's basically a steel drum flipped upside down, enclosed, and played by banging it with your fingers. There's a good number of YouTube videos using this instrument, but this one is nice and short and is a great example of how the instrument is played. Also, apparently if you're white, wearing a knitted bag on your head is a prerequisite (watch enough of the videos and you'll see what I mean). Anyway, I ran across this video again while going down the YouTube rabbit hole and thought I share. Enjoy.
  6. Daniel Waples, street musician with unbelievable instrument! wow, this is the coolest instrument I have seen.

  9. *Hang Drum* I recently stumbled across an instrument called a hang drum (see http://goo.gl/kDZ7e, h/t to +Kimberly Carr and +Tyoshi Sakamoto). The sound produced by the hang is really amazing. *Check out **+Daniel Waples** in the video below!* Here are the hang musicians recommended in the comments of the original post: +Davide Swarup, +MILOS JANATA, +Dante Bucci, +Portico Quartet, and Ravid Hang. You can also find recommended videos/articles in the comments section of the original post. Stop by and check them out ( http://goo.gl/7BpuZ). *Here's an excerpt from Wikipedia describing the instrument:* http://goo.gl/h6NOo. *A Hang (pronounced [haŋ], with vowel sound between those of the words hot and hungry) is a musical instrument in the idiophone class created by PANArt in Switzerland.[1]* *The Hang is made from two deep drawn, nitrided steel sheets[2] that are attached together creating the recognizable 'UFO shape'. There is nothing inside the Hang but air. The top ("Ding") side has a center 'note' hammered into it with seven or eight 'tone fields' hammered around it. The bottom ("Gu") is a simpler surface that has a rolled hole in the center with a tuned note that can be created when the rim is struck.* *The Hang uses some of the same physical principles as a steelpan but with a nitrided surface and structural change of having two clamped shells with a small opening so that the instrument is a Helmholtz resonator.[1][3] The creation of the Hang was the result of many years of research on the steelpan as well as the study of a diverse collection of instruments from around the world such as gongs, gamelan, ghatam, drums and bells.[4] Metallurgical and acoustic research by the makers has led to significant changes and refinement in structure, design, and process over the years since the first Hang was offered.* cc: +Allison Sekuler +Robby Bowles +ScienceSunday #sciencesunday
