Anarchestra




We enjoyed seeing and hearing the Anarchestra again at the Tucson Sculpture Festival 2013.  Electric Tiger Productions made a YouTube video of the event:






The Anarchestra creates all of it's sounds from scratch.  It is an orchestra of handmade, welded instruments, which cover all 4 categories of noise makers -- Drums, Percussion (like marimba), Winds (horns, flutes, clarinets), and Strings.  Listen to them all in a YouTube playlist.

The Anarchestra was experimenting during the festival.  They built a Plate Reverb Device, using the bottle cap microphones, that they built during the CMKT 4 workshop at Heatsync hackerspace in Mesa (near Phoenix) last year.
