Excavated Gem – Scientific American Frontiers plays with “Toy Symphony”

Some music enthusiast ripped this footage from an episode of Scientific American Frontiers (around 2002) and posted it on YouTube. Host Alan Alda narrates (and sings!), while violinist Joshua Bell jams on a hyperviolin developed for Tod Machover’s Toy Symphony project. Enjoy!
