1. Almost everyday, on my way to a local bakery, I walk in front of a dry cleaners.
    When they have the front door open, I hear a lot of interesting sounds coming from their work equipment. Eventually, the different mechanical and steam sounds sparked something in my mind, so one day I asked the owners if I could record a piece of music by using their machines as musical instruments.

    I used a puff iron, press and dry cleaning machines, a washer, clothes hangers, and a bucket full of soap.
    The bass and lead sounds were created from the buzzing tones coming from the conduits and engines.
    There are no additional sounds from any traditional or electronic instruments. Enjoy!

  2. I always been fascinated by the raw musical power that an orchestra can express, so, after creating a series of videos where I'm performing a multi-track piece with an instrument I designed, I decided to take the concept a step farther and create my own orchestra made of unusually unique instruments.

    The project started by handcrafting a diverse selection of instruments, then I wrote a composition where I could fit them all in and finally performed each part. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed doing it!

    If you'd like to read a description about each instrument and its playing techniques please follow this link to my Behance gallery: http://bit.ly/ROZP4s
