    Music with Taste: the First Vegetable Orchestra

    Vegans Unite! The first viennese vegetable orchestra consists exclusively of vegetable-based instruments: carrots and cucumbers instead of guitars and drums. or, cuke-phon and radish-marimba. All the standard instruments that can be found in a vegetable garden. You can veiw a list of the vegatable instrument on their website.

    "Where necessary, additional kitchen utensils such as knives or mixers are employed. this creates an autonomous and totally novel type of sound which cannot be achieved with conventional musical instruments. marinated sound ideas and canned listening habits beg for expansion! This music is a playful departure from the conventional way of looking at vegetables as mere means to still an appetite. the instruments are subsequently made into a soup so that the audience can then enjoy them a second time..."

    You can listen to vegatable orchestra demos on their site: http://www.gemueseorchester.org/anfang.htm

    Do you think this orchestra should be sampled?

    I hope there are spit valves on those cuke-phones (especially when it comes time for soup)!

    I can't make that link work. I guess I'll try it later.

    Gary, these are great.

    By any chance, are you including this one in GPO Advanced? It's the best!

    A great gift idea, The Mandolin Slicer!

    For only $26.99 you can buy your very own Norpro Mandolin Slicer from Target! But why would anyone want to slice and dice a mandolin?

    It's dishwasher safe and a perfect complement to the Vegatable Orchestra.

    Thanks David , now let's sing the verse...

    Hominy and understanding
    Broccoli and corn abounding,
    No more false foods or derisions,
    Golden fresh beans cooked in Vision ®
    Crystal sugar saturation
    And the taste’s infatuation…
    Asparagus….Asparagus!

    Then Peas will guide the planet.
    And love will steer the stars…
