This Vienna orchestra plays instruments made out of fresh vegetables. The cool instruments are crafted before every performance. Each vegetable has its own unique sound, which makes them ideal impromptu instruments — you can make a carrot sound like a flute and make herbs squeak rhythmically. Guards also make great drums.
The veg-friendly musicians find new ways to play their organic instruments — makeshift woodwinds can turn into string instruments if you carve them the right way. They also incorporate tools into their performances like power drills, as well as electricity. The possibilities are pretty endless, considering how many different shapes, sizes and consistencies there are. This also makes every concert experience different — you never know what kind of vegetables are going to be slapped, squished, pounded and swished.
The musicians all come from different artistic backgrounds and they play all over the world. The leftover foods that don’t get used at the end of a performance gets turned into soups for the guests to enjoy at the end of the concert. So, there’s fortunately not too much waste associated with the shows. Music can be made in so many different ways — even the stuff sitting in your crisper drawer can make melodies if you want it to!
