The Waterphone

(Video Link)

The waterphone is a musical instrument invented by Richard Waters in the 1970s. It has a steel resonator partially filled with water. Rods of various lengths project away from the resonator and can be played by striking with a mallet or stroking with a bow. The eerie music that results has been used extensively in movie soundtracks. Listen to this sample, and you can understand why.
