Len Solomon and his amazing DIY musical contraptionsThe Kid Should See This
Making instruments can be as simple as adding different amounts of water to a row of bottles or as elaborate as creating your own pipe organ-style instruments from any object that suits a musical vision. That’s what Len Solomon does. For over 30 years, he’s invented instruments by “filing and sawing” parts like “old vacuum cleaner tubes and plastic bottles, hardware supplies like PVC pipes and copper tees, and specialty items he makes himself like rubber squeeze balls and fipples.”

  1. The sound is really quirky….this guy is really quirky too I love it. Hey it reminds me of this ridiculous and yet highly addictive channel on YouTube…this guy from the UK is an undiscovered gem of comedy. Check out this video where he is a medieval instrumentalist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORO1FcEqBV8 So good haha. Also the one where he does really great Brexit poetry. It may appeal to you 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o21p3cPV-z4
