The Avant Garde: Playing with Your Food (YouTube)

Currently, the most popular video on YouTube is of a shirtless, inebriated David Hasselhoff trying to eat a hamburger. Instead, LOL offers you this: a video from the Vegetable Orchestra, an Austrian musical group that plays with instruments made from, well, vegetables. describes the band's fragile handmade devices thusly: "Their unique instruments include the carrot recorder, the cucumberophone, and the leek violin among many others. Musically falling somewhere between avant-garde classical and electronic music without actually sounding like either one, the performers have created what they consider to be a new genre: vegetable music." Frank Zappa would've loved it. <>
