Felix Thorn’s Increidble Music Sculptures

Felix Thorn is a British tinkerer who makes electronic music out of found objects with incredible results. Made from bits and pieces of old instruments, randomly found stuff and a mountain of LEDs these are less instruments and more sculptures, pieces of art that play music. Watching this video and seeing all the random things he creates I was totally baffled how you’d even begin to think of creations like this. I love that he leaves all of the sculptures in their somewhat natural state, so you can see bit of a piano, a clock, a metal cone or what have you. But the real excitement comes when he plays them all together, creating actual songs and melodies. As someone in the comments of the video wrote, in 20 years his home is going to look like something out of Wallace & Gromit.
