As part of the Street Musician’s Day, London-based artist Tadas Maksimovas has used his hair to prove that music has no boundaries. To show that anyone can play any instrument and anyone is welcome no matter how good he/she is, they made this experiment and played music with hair. A material that looks impossible to play with at first glance.


Twisting and gluing Maksimovas’ hair into tightly spun fibers, the fine threads were then fixed to the wooden violin, positioned along the instrument, and played by Lithuanian violinist Eimantas Belickas.
