Vietnamese man creates bizarre musical instrument from beer cans and cassette tapes

This 70-year-old Indonesian musician has created a unique electric drum from beer cans, cassette tapes and other recycled objects. Nguyen Hong Phuoc has been working on his invention for years and he says it requires a light touch to play the instrument correctly. "I just lightly touch the lead wire and it makes a sound... it's very scientific," he explains. Initially, Hong Phuoc's instrument was met with laughter by his friends and neighbours in the An Giang province. "I thought he was making a toy but when he finished the instrument and put it to use, I was very impressed," admits Nguyen Hoai Trung. "Only his special gift and passion allowed him to create this one-of-a-kind instrument,” he concludes.
