There’s nothing quite so satisfying as seeing something performing its one function with utter perfection.

Equally, the music of Bach is a mathematically precise and perfect expression of the very same thing, but in music.

Can you see where we’re going with this? Here’s a superb contraption that plays a Bach superhit just by sticking a golf ball in the top. Magic. (And a very well-deserved round of applause at the end.)
