The Vegetable Orchestra (No, really)
We stumbled across this over the Bank Holiday weekend, and couldn't not draw your attention to it - we present to you Onionoise, the Vegetable Orchestra. Making sweet music from instruments crafted from everyday vegetables, this collection of musical pioneers is based in Austria and to our shame has existed for 15 years without us knowing about their existence.
To quote from their website, "The utilization of various ever refined vegetable instruments creates a musically and aesthetically unique sound universe. The Vegetable Orchestra was founded in 1998. Based in Vienna, the Vegetable Orchestra plays concerts in all over the world. There are no musical boundaries for the Vegetable Orchestra. The most diverse music styles fuse here - contemporary music, beat-oriented House tracks, experimental Electronic, Free Jazz, Noise, Dub, Clicks'n'Cuts - the musical scope of the ensemble expands consistently, and recently developed vegetable instruments and their inherent sounds often determine the direction."
