Not to burst anyone’s bubble as I like the video too, but I’m wondering if the tuned wineglass portion is fake. I recall a time years ago when glass players were searching for a material to replace the wetted finger with no luck. A well rosined violin bow will work in the vertical position but not horizontally like a pruny finger.
Perhaps they’ve discovered a new form of synthetic rubber or equivalent to a rosined bow. Not only that but the same size glasses will be the same pitch unless tuned usually by adding water. I see glasses of different sizes but also a number of similar sizes. The sound of the marimba is a bit troubling as I am hearing a lovely tone produced by yarn covered mallets, not hard bouncy balls, although a larger super ball type compound might give a tone like that.
Fact or overdubbed fiction - either way still a fun idea.
