Playing Violin Can Be Quite a Hairy Situation

Well here’s a candidate for world’s worst hair salon experience. Actor and musician Andrius Mamontovas turned himself into a human guinea pig as he subjected his hair to be turned into live violin strings.

The experiment was all part of an annual event held in Lithuania called Street Musicians’ Day. Artist Tadas Maksimova turned Mamontovas’ hair (while still attached to his head) into a human violin. As tightly wounded (and excruciatingly painful) as Mamontovas’ hair looked, the experiment actually sounds relatively great from a sonic perspective. However the steady tone remains to be seen if it can hold when given a full sonata treatment, though we’re pretty sure Mamontovas wouldn’t prefer the smell of burnt hair.
