Submitted for your approval... The daxophone. A tuned slab of wood, it can look like a wooden bat'leth sword you'd use in a middle school play about Klingons. When bowed, it sounds alternately like a whale, Chewbacca, and a baritone sax. And it's the primary instrument on this track. Which I'm not positive I love, but it does gain points for uniqueness.

That's a very neat find - enough so that I looked at a couple of videos to see how they're made. I'm not sure I love it either, but the pieces are quite lovely and the music they make is very intriguing.

I thought you might appreciate this. It's a case where the instruments seem to be a work of art in themselves, and then there's the music. Although I'm sure that's true of other musical instruments.
