My son Joseph who is enrolled in the physics program at ASU could probably explain that entire video to me. I just think it's cool...:bravo:

I would fathom this is the simplest explanation: cord length. I'm guessing that the cord lengths were made to be very specific in order to create this effect. Basic physics tells us that a swinging pendulum takes the same amount of time to swing from one side to the other and back no matter how far it's traveling and I'm sure that contributes to what's being seen.

The key is that each string is the exact same amount longer than the one before This can be a half inch or a single millimeter.
