Bowed Vibes

It’s hard to explain just how beautiful the sound of a vibraphone being bowed is. It’s a percussion instrument, so it’s supposed to be hit with a mallet. But applying a cello bow to the metal bars unleashes a sound like no other.

The sound of bowing instantly makes it appear orchestral at first, but then you soon hear a slowly evolving glassy, almost metallic tone appear from underneath. Playing chords and adding reverb makes the sound of a bowed vibraphone become almost like a chamber choir.
