So NPR featured one of the winners named Walter Kitundu who is a "multimedia artist" who builds and creates hybrid instruments out of old turntables, stings and other stuff.
Making an instrument of my own thats completely unique has been something that I have wanted to try for a very long time, so i found this story particularly intriguing. This guy is freaking nuts.
Here is my favorite instrument.
Its called the "Rain Activated Acoustic Phonograph"
"Installed curbside on streets with an incline, this instrument uses runoff rainwater for power. When it rains soft music plays all over the city. The music also arrives during the spring thaw, accompanying the water's return to the sea. Neighborhood residents get to decide on the music."
He's made quite a few other instruments that are equally as cool, check em out on his website. He also has some videos of him demonstrating these.
