Instruments That Require No Musician

If you thought the musical saw was unusual, what about an instrument that plays without human assistance? That’s right there are musical instruments that are played with the assistance of nature only. No musician is necessary! The Aeolian wind harp and the wave organ are perfect examples.
The Aeolian wind harp, is as name indicates, played by the wind. Its origins can be traced back to Ancient Greece. Since the wind harp requires no human involvement, it emanates an eerie sound that is reliant solely on Mother Nature. Like the wind harp, the wave organ also relies solely on nature as its musician. The ocean’s waves create the sounds as they move in and out of the tubes located on the underside of the structure. The random notes are heard coming from the openings on the surface of the organ.
