Bees and cello interesting
There are 20,000 honey bees living inside this reclaimed cello – and it’s all part of a musical project by a university professor.
Martin Bencsik, a professor from Nottingham Trent University, has encouraged a swarm of bees to set up hive inside his cello.
Bencsik, whose wife is a professional cellist, has used the reclaimed instrument to research vibrations and sounds made by bees.
At the end of the project, Bencsik will record the noises in order to create a musical soundscape, which will culminate in a performance later this year. He hopes his project will raise awareness about the decline of the pollinating insects.
Within a few weeks, the whole cell phone will be full of honeycomb.
