Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

Kenichi Kanazawa is what we would call a “sound sculptor.” It may sound complicated to some but thanks to the following video, you are about to learn more.

This is one of the coolest demonstrations that you are ever going to see and we cannot stop watching it if we tried. It’s the sort of video that begs for repeat viewings because it is hard to fathom what he is actually doing here.

At first, you are bound to think that he’s got a screw loose or something. He dumps sand all over the table and it is easy to wonder what the heck is going on. Why would Kenichi make such a ridiculous mess for the sake of a video?

Once you have had the chance to check this one out, you will see why. There is a method to this man’s madness and we are glad to have a front-row seat to one of the coolest musical displays of all time. Yes, that may seem like an exaggeration at first but trust us on this one. You know that we would never lead you astray.

The video was shared by Contemporary Art Japan and shows the man, a sculptor by trade, who has since transitioned into a whole new world of awesomeness. He collaborated with a sound artist back in 1987 and he was off and running from there. From there, he started to work with steel and sound, creating some of the coolest results possible. This video is a prime example of that.

We can’t lie, when he first dumps the sand onto the table, we were just as confused as anyone. Why would this man choose to make an absolute mess like that?

As it turns out, he’s got a plan and we are given the chance to watch him bring it to fruition. Once he breaks out the mallet and starts rubbing it onto the sand, we started to put two and two together.

However, we are not about to spoil the rest of this video for the audience at home. To find out more about the sand, the mallet and this man’s amazing gift, you are simply going to have to check out this awesome video for yourself:
