Stella Artois Chalices Double As Rock Band Instruments [Video]
Four new glass instruments created by Andy Cavatorta and played by Cold War Kids.
The Stella Artois chalice is a prized possession for many beer drinkers, but thanks to a collaboration with MIT sonic inventor Andy Cavatorta, it could soon become the envy of art collectors as well. The Chalice Symphony also involved indie rock band Cold War Kids, and has resulted in four fully-functional music instruments inspired by elements of the iconic glassware
All of the instruments; known as the Hive, the Pryophone, the Star Harp and the Violina, will also be on display in a gallery setting on Manhattan’s Lower East Side for a limited period of time. While not everyone will be able to see them, you can still listen to the instruments in action on a new track from Cold War Kids called “A Million Eyes.”
