Waterphone

Invented and developed by Richard Waters, a waterphoneis a type of inharmonic acoustic percussion instrument consisting of a water-filled resonator bowl with a cylindrical neck and bronze rods of different lengths and diameters around the rim of the bowl. It produces a vibrant ethereal sound that horror movie fans are probably all familiar with and can also be heard in record albums and live performances. The sound of the waterphone is often used to evoke mystery and suspense. A superball mallet has become the prime way of drumming the waterphone.

These look like Gotham City shots from The Dark Knight, but it's just New York City shot by filmmaker Vincent Laforet for his "Gotham 7.5K". All of the photos were captured during a helicopter ride at night, with camera strapped to a special body harness to enable Foret to safely lean out to get the spectacular shots from 7,500-feet above ground. The photographer and filmmaker says: "Let's just start off by saying this was the scariest helicopter 'photo mission' of my career...And the most beautiful I was finally able to capture some of the images that I've dreamed of capturing for decades. I was recently on assignment for Men's Health Magazine and I proposed shooting the city from an unusually high altitude so that we could capture the lines that are formed by the streets of New York at night. It was an article about psychology and I've always thought that from a high altitude the streets looked like brain 'synapses' - at least to me."
