Hair Music


Can human hair be used to string a violin? What would this sound like? These are the questions that inform a project aptly called Hair Music the Experiment. After a decade of hair growth, Tadas decided to collaborate with violinist Eimantas Belickas to produce an experimental music piece, using a violin strung with his own hair.




Hair Music the Experiment was selected for the ‘HAIR! Human hair in fashion and art’ exhibition at the Centraal Museum, Utrecht. The project has featured on numerous design, tech, and lifestyle blogs, including: Gizmodo, Juxtapoz, ViceDesignboomDesign Taxi, Bored Panda, MetroNoiseyThe Mail OnlineThe Huffington Post as well as shown on React to That, Tracks, Right this Minute, QYOU, Outrageous Acts of Science and Duck Quacks Don't Echo. Hair Music is also included in Ripley's Believe It or Not! annual.
