Beautiful. Kuha’o, The Blind Musical Prodigy.
Kuha’o is a Hawaiian-born blind musical prodigy. He discovered his piano and organ talent only three years ago! Interestingly, his name translates as “extraordinary gift.” I have to agree this young man has a wonderful talent.
Kuha’o has a dream to be able to put out his first CD. If you’d like to help, check out the full details on their Kickstarter page.
Watch more piano performances on Kuha’o’s YouTube channel.

Interactive Musical Wall Brightens Hospital Spirit.
Montreal-based interactive media specialists Moment Factory created a musical wall to stimulate childrens’ imaginations as they wait for their doctor’s appointment at the CHU Ste-Justine Hospital.
The experience begins when hospital visitors touch the wall. By moving their hands and fingers around, they produce vibrant lines and shapes that trace their movement and produce musical notes.
No doubt a smile-inducing experience for visitors of all ages. Hope to see this in more hospitals and other public spaces!
There’s music in the sighing of a reed;
There’s music in the gushing of a rill;
There’s music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.
The DIY Gramophone Made Out Of Paper.
Called the ‘Jónófón’, the paper gramophone consists of a plywood base, a paper cup, and a thick paper horn to amplify sound.
Yet another item to add to my list of nifty things I’d like to have. Too bad he hasn’t announced his release date yet.
