Vienna’s Vegetable Orchestra

We are now big fans of the Vegetable Orchestra after listening to PRI’s The World radio segment about it. Members of the orchestra make their own instruments before every performance. Beginning as purchases from local markets, vegetable instruments are reamed out, carved, and tested before being played in performance. Back-up vegetable instruments are also made in case of a malfunction. The resulting music is very hip and techno. Watch a video and see if you don’t agree that this is an awesome show.
