musical exploration

This bench, at the Tinkering Studio at the Exploratorium, plays music if two people each touch an arm of the bench and then touch each other. My arms are too short to manage this on my own...

...but with a little help from Soren...

...we can make music.

(The pitch of the tones varies based on the electrical resistance between the bench arms. The Exploratorium website has an explanation, including a link to instructions to build your own musical bench.)

We stayed at the Exploratorium for about four hours. The sun was low when we left.
