Chopsticks aren’t just for eating with anymore.
Tokyo-based composer and inventor Sami Elu has created a “piano” made out of chopsticks, which he uses by plucking piano wires and playing the chopsticks like piano keys. There’s also a little drum set, so Elu can operate his own percussion section.
This isn’t the first iteration of the chopstick piano, but it’s certainly the most complex. Elu has been building different versions of his invention for years — and he plans to keep going.
Bonus: The chopstick piano songbook is wonderfully calming. We’d listen to it before bed, for sure.
