In the News: A Musical Feast

While I was browsing the interwebs for work today, I came across this video about two Chinese brothers who make musical instruments out of bok choy, sweet potatoes, leeks and more:

 

 

Apparently, they are partial to playing songs by the Bee Gees and Korn. Hah.

So that’s amazing, yeah? I would agree, except for the fact that the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra has been doing this since 1998:

 

In case you’re wondering, the orchestra cooks all its instruments in a big soup to serve to the audience following every performance. Nice in theory, but kind of gross if you think about all the spit that’s blown into the “woodwind” veggies.

Doesn’t matter. I still want a pan flute made out of leeks and carrots.
