What crazy looking instruments can i build with a minimum of skill + resources and a maximum of WTF.
i'm in a band playing keyboards, and sometimes i have nothing to do. tambourine and shakers are fine but sometimes i would like to make percussion noises like this:
BONG BANG BOMG BOOM
or sometimes I would like to make noises like this:
crashhhhh PING clang ttttttttcccchhhhhhhhhh AxAxAckAx riiiiiiiiitttchhhhhhhh
or sometimes maybe a little bit of eeeeeeeeeeeeexxxxxxxxxxCCVVVVViiiiiiiiiiiREOW
! like a dying robot
Have you made strange percussion instruments? What did you do? Have you made traditional folk instrument
s in bizarre artistic shapes, or re-purposed regular household things to make amazing noises when you hit them together? Example: I used to play a big cardboard box with fly swatters-- it was beautiful.
Electronic suggestions are great too but i really dont know how to sauder or wire anything--but if you think of a toy or piece of electrical equipment that makes a crazy sound I'll take it.
Even if you haven't actually made them before please help me think of some new cheap but wild ideas out of your brain instead!
finally it'd be ideal if they are easy to transport and repair on the road.
anything i build i will obviously post pictures of them herein.
i thanks you and my adoring public thanks you in advance.
if you must know, yes i totally stole this idea from Drink Up Buttercup
