The internet never ceases to amaze me. In my search for some information on making wind chimes, bamboo organs and aeolian harps, I happened upon what I can only call, a delightful delight! A clarinet made from a carrot by a certain Linsey Pollak. The inventor in me was immediately taken by this man’s creative genius and the musician in me rejoices at his talent and his spirit.
“Linsey has a reputation for making and playing instruments made from rubber gloves, carrots, watering cans, chairs, brooms, bins, and other found objects.” … “Linsey Pollak is one of Australia’s most brilliant and under-rated composer/musicians. He is wildly innovative in the use of instruments but never lets his experimentation get in the way of the musicality of a work.” … From Linsey Pollak’s Website
What follows are three amazing, unique and fun videos of Linsey doing what Linsey does. I am so glad that I found them. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did and that they bring a smile to your faces.
Linsey, if you ever happen upon our site, thank you for sharing your talent and making hearts smile.
