Video description
Can you imagine what the world will be like in 1,000 years? Yeah, neither can we. But one man has created a piece of music that will still be playing by the end of the next millennium. Composer Jem Finer was always intrigued by the concept of time. So in the year 2000, he decided to commemorate the new millennium by writing “Longplayer”—an everlasting piece of music that repeats every 1,000 years (http://longplayer.org/). While Finer won't be around in 2999 when the symphony resets, his hope is that it will unite a community of listeners across generations—all connected by the soothing sounds of singing bowls.

I went into Peter Prier and Sons in Salt Lake City, where I put to the test a violin I bought off of Amazon for $62, and an antique Italian violin for $285,000.

Sounds of the Nightmare Machine

What happens when a horror movie composer and a guitar maker join forces? They create the world’s most disturbing musical instrument. Affectionately known as "The Apprehension Engine," this one-of-a-kind instrument was commissioned by movie composer Mark Korven. Korven wanted to create spooky noises in a more acoustic and original way—but the right instrument didn't exist. So his friend, guitar maker Tony Duggan-Smith, went deep into his workshop and assembled what has to be the spookiest instrument on Earth.

No Roads, No Cars, Just Boats

Most of us town-and-city dwellers spend our days pounding hard, paved ground. But in Giethoorn, Holland, residents float through canals. Built without roads, a series of waterways and bridges connect the town’s 2,400 residents. This incredible aquatic infrastructure has even earned the town the nickname “Little Venice.” We have to admit, a life without asphalt, gridlock and the DMV sounds pretty enchanting.

The Lone Man Building a Cathedral By Hand

For 53 years, Justo Gallego has been building a cathedral by hand on the outskirts of Madrid almost entirely by himself. Gallego has no formal architecture or construction training, but that hasn't stopped him from toiling on this herculean task. At 90 years old, Gallego knows that he will not be able to finish the project in his lifetime. But he keeps at it anyway, day after day, driven by his faith.

Perfecting Japan's Seasonal Sweets Through Six Generations

For the past six generations, the Fukushima family has mastered and preserved the intricate art of Japanese confectionery known as wagashi. These ornate sweets, meant to reflect the delicate beauty of nature, were traditionally created to accompany the Japanese tea ceremony. They are often shaped to resemble traditional flower motifs, and change with the shifting seasons. At Fukushimaya, approximately 200 different types of sweets are created throughout the year, with daffodils and camellia blossoms ushering in spring. Using designs that date back to Japan’s Edo period, the Fukushima family is keeping a deeply-rooted Japanese art form alive. This Great Big Story...

At 84, the World's Oldest Female Sharpshooter Doesn't Miss

At age 65, Chandro Tomar, who lives in a small village in the Uttar Pradesh state of northern India, stumbled upon a shooting range and picked up a gun for the first time. When she aimed the gun at a target and pulled the trigger, she realized she was a natural. Just like that, Tomar became a sharpshooter. Now 84 years old, Tomar has won countless shooting competitions, but she's most proud of the impact she's had training other young women in her community.

Saint Petersburg's Gilded Church of Blood and Potatoes

The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is one of the most colorful and ornate landmarks in all of Europe. Located in the middle of Saint Petersburg, Russia, the church has been a memorial, a morgue and even a storage facility for vegetables. Known for the colorful onion-shaped domes that dot the city's skyline, the church was erected on the spot of Emperor Alexander II's assassination in 1881. Inside, colorful mosaics, Italian marble and precious stones decorate the walls and ceilings. During World War II, the church was used as a temporary morgue and after the war it was...

The Wasabi You Eat Probably Isn’t Wasabi

Most of the time, the wasabi you get in a restaurant or buy in a store is fake. It’s actually horseradish that’s colored green. Why? Well, wasabi is a notoriously difficult plant to grow. In fact, it’s considered the most difficult plant in the world to farm commercially. Yet for the past century, the Daio Wasabi Farm in Hokata, Japan, has been growing it successfully with natural spring water from nearby mountains. A great big story made in partnership with ANA (https://www.ana.co.jp/wws/uk/e/wws_common/promotions/bydesign/meal.html).

More Than Murals: The Artist Keeping Japan's Bathhouse Art Alive

Sentos are public bathhouses with a long and rich history in Japanese culture. Traditionally, tranquil, hand-painted murals adorned the walls of each sento. These murals, which often depict soothing blue water, pastel-green landscapes and Mount Fuji, are designed to lift bathers' spirits and relax their minds. Since the 1970s, however, sentos have become less popular and bathhouse muralists are less in demand. Yet Mizuki Tanaka—Japan's first female sento mural artist—is dedicated to revitalizing this craft and making Japan’s bathhouses a destination for all once more. This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis. SUBSCRIBE: https://goo.gl/vR6Acb Got a story idea for us? Shoot...

Meet the King of Fake Cash

It's no secret that most of the money you see in movies or music videos is fake, but what might surprise you is that most of it comes from one source. Rich "RJ" Rappaport started RJR Props nine years ago as a full-service prop shop, but his specialty is fake cash. As you can imagine, making fake money is a highly regulated endeavor that is closely watched by federal authorities, so Rappaport has to be extra careful to ensure his fakes never make it into circulation. Still, when your prop money is the go-to for rap videos and has been...

Explore Turkey’s Hidden Underground City

Eighteen stories below ground in Turkey’s Cappadocia region, the ancient city of Derinkuyu remained hidden for centuries. The underground city was rediscovered in 1963 when a man knocked down a wall in his basement and stumbled across a hidden room. From there, an excavation revealed the impressive network of tunnels connecting ancient churches, schools and living quarters. In total, the city likely could have protected 20,000 people and their livestock from wars and natural disasters. SUBSCRIBE: https://goo.gl/vR6Acb This story is a part of our Planet Earth series.
