Can sound make a light spot dance?

Fig– Can sound make a light spot dance?

Take a tin-can. Remove both ends to make it a hollow cylinder. Take a balloon and stretch it over the can, then wrap a rubber band around the balloon. Take a small piece of mirror. Use a drop of glue to stick the piece of mirror to the balloon. Allow the light through a slit to fall on the mirror. After reflection the light spot is seen on the wall. Talk or shout directly into the open end of the can and observe the dancing light spot on the wall.
