Reinhold Marxhausen on David Letterman

Remembering Marxie

Marxhausen taught at Concordia from 1951 until his retirement in 1989, mentoring hundreds of students and becoming well known for his creative teaching strategies. Marxhausen also gained recognition by exhibiting his artwork and giving talks and hands-on seminars at churches and schools nationwide. Marxhausen received wide exposure when he appeared on Late Night with David Letterman in 1986, demonstrating his charming, pocket-size sound sculptures called Stardust. The palm-sized stainless steel objects looked like rocks and had wires inside that created a symphony of sound.
