HOW MANY MUSICIANS DOES IT TAKE TO SETUP A CHANDELIER?

LOL - Just one!

You guys know I just moved into my new place. My wife & I chose an elegant chandelier for our dining room.

Just like writing a piece for an orchestra requires laying out in detail which instruments you actually want or need to use, setting up a chandelier required...

1) SETTING UP ALL THE CRYSTALS YOU NEED
There were only 150 of them! Have a look:


2) PATIENTLY GOING ROUND & ROUND... Hooking up the crystals and the right pendants...
This part took nearly 2.5 hours - Enough time to listen to Bach's Goldberg Variations (the 1981 Glenn Gould recording ) and the "Essential Floyd Cramer" double CD.
(Click picture to enlarge!)


3) Ta-DA! The Final Result!

Hopefully the next music I'll listen isn't going to be "Phantom of the Opera" where the massive chandelier smashes all over the stage! :)

Ciao!
