At the gallery,we are having a show with a music theme,so I put together another musical instrument which I made from a computer heat sink.The fins produce a nice,mellow ringing sound when played.The show is in coordination with a free jazz festival that is going on in the neighborhood on Saturday.Thank you for taking a look and for any comments.

Jim, this was a very clever idea if you had. I wish I could attend the gallery showing.

Sorry, but I can't see any musical connection. It's just a heatsink stuck on to what looks like the logic board of a hard drive and an old keypad board. How is it a harp? Looks more like a nuclear power plant than a harp, and what are the other 3 pieces supposed to be?. Please explain.
Different sounds are produced by striking different areas of the fins and by using the various strikers much like various sounds are achieved by the same drumskin depending on which part of the drumskin is stuck and by using various sticks,mallets,brushes or by hand.

Really interesting what you still can do with old parts. I can imagine about how it sounds. Great shot.

Fabulous capture and idea, Jim. Very creative instrument for sure. I wonder if it plays the same notes, no matter which rib you strike. Or if it is meant to strike all ribs at once.

I can understand how this works Jim - a sweet idea. I can't imagine how many thousands of computer parts that I threw away after a 32 year PC repair career. To think that I started out converting tubes into transistors!
