The final countdown

Strange instrument, even stranger vocalist. It combines a tiny piano with a ukulele and a kazoo. Even stranger instrument video after the jump




The Bubble Organ

Aaron Wendell created this instrument in instructor Eric Leonardson’s instrument construction class at SAIC. Aaron started out with the idea of using water bubbles to create sounds, and then had to figure out everything from how to make the instrument case watertight, to how he could direct the air flow, to how to set up a bellows-type system to create the air flow in the first place. The result is a bizarre yet comfortably Victorian-looking contraption that creates a completely unique sound.
