Playing with food never felt so artistic.
Enjoy here the bizarre and outright wild stylings of the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra, a group that generates its music exclusively from specialized produce they pick up from the grocer the day of the show.
The instruments require occasional lubrication during the performances, as the hot lights of a stage performance will begin to dry the raw plants, and that can apparently change the sound various carrot recorders and cucumberophones make, so they much dip them in water between pieces and sets.
The best part? They make a soup out of the instruments after the show and share with the audience.
