El Estepario Siberiano, aka “The Groovefather,” is a skilled percussionist. In this video, he shows off his talents with a cover of the AC/DC track Thunderstruck on a tubulum – that PVC pipe instrument made famous by Blue Man Group. He looped multiple sequences to create the track, but it’s still impressive for an instrument he’s just learning to play.
So you’ve spent the morning digging a trench to lay some PVC pipe in it. You could spend the rest of the day gradually lowering the pipe section-by-section, or you could do what this industrious construction crew does and lay the whole thing in seconds. Apparently, this isn’t the first time this trick has worked.
Blue Man Group put the sound of banging on pipes on the map. Imagine if Doc Ock got their hands on their music makers, and you’d have a pretty clear idea of what OCTAV is. Created by industrial designer Asaf Wainberg, the wild-looking wearable is a set of plastic drain pipes that have been cut to different lengths to produce notes.
