Boston, MA (IP) - The Jilliard and Berkeley Music Schools have teamed up and are working on a joint project to build a giant saxophone.
The Saxophone is 200 feet in length and because of an ingenious design the horn will actually be playable. The fingering mechanism will be the same size as that of a baritone sax and it will be able to operate the rest of the saxophone's giant vlave mechanics. This has been made possible by balancing devices along the length of the horn.
The mouth piece and reed will also match that of the size found on the baritone sax.
Scientists and engineers working along with the Juilliard - Berkeley team say that a really large person will have to be found who can play the saxophone due to the lung power required to blow through the horn.
