Hair Music: The Experiment
Tadas Maksimovas spins hair into playable violin strings
Artist Tadas Maksimovas has used his hair to form the strings of violin. In his part performance art part musical project, the artist worked in collaboration with a creative team to twist and glue his thick locks of hair into tightly spun fibres. After which, these fibres were fixed along the length of a real wooden violin body. The result of this is a functioning and playable violin that is used in performance by a musician who plays the violin right next to the Maksimovas’s head. The violin was created for street musicians’ day, which is an annual music event initiated by Lithuanian musician Andrius Mamontovas. This violin proves that even the most ambiguous materials can be transformed into objects of alternative use.
