After many years of experiencing concerts, we have been thinking, what other instruments are out there that produce more unusual sounds.

When it comes to musical instrument making, a good amount of creativity is required. The elementary school teacher Junji Koyama from Japan does not only make instruments out of vegetables and fruits, he also plays on them. On his own YouTube channel, he presents the cabbage slide whistle, the carrot pipe and the celery nose flute. You can also watch instruction videos and his suggestion to upcycle the left-overs: Just eat it!

Turn up the temperature in the concert hall and you’d have, not a finely chiseled viola, flute or conga, but a glass of water. Ice-instrument maker Tim Linhart has held ice concerts in the coolest locations all over the globe. Originally from New Mexico, Linhart was invited to one of the world’s first ice hotels in Luleå, Swedish Lapland. He was requested to build his ice-instruments to be played in an igloo auditorium near the city. Meet the coolest orchestra in the world.

You can start your own musical instrument building career now! The New York Philharmonic Kidzone instrument lab shows how to create lots of instruments out of nearly anything. Get your own inspiration in the lab or try our favourite instrument: The metrocard bassoon!

Saturday will be the the 6th International Jazz Day celebrating jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. The day was initiated by UNESCO.

This brings us to focus on our Jazz clients today:

Michael Chillingworth is a London based saxophonist and clarinettist. With his debut jazz album Scratch And Sift – out on 1st July – he reminds us how inspiring everyday life is. Each track tells a story from his everyday life and finds drama in the mundane, from the freshness of a shower to cinematic villains or the poetic presentation on Japanese sweet packaging!

Kenneth Dahl Knudsen is a Danish composer and double bass player. For his debut album We’ll Meet In The Rain, which is to be released on 6th May, he gathered together an international jazz orchestra. The album weaves between contemporary jazz and cinematic orchestral music. Each piece speaks about Dahl Knudsen’s encounters with people, their stories and anecdotes.


Michael and Kenneth are definitely two artists you should keep your eye on! Stay tuned and follow them on their social media sites:

Michael Chillingworth: website, twitter

Kenneth Dahl Knudsen: website, YouTube, facebook

Both artists will release their albums on the London-based record label Two Rivers Records.
