An orchestra of 200 old household objects: “The Stupid Orchestra”
Such an incredible idea, displayed beautifully and arranged like a symphony orchestra. It is the result of approximately 200 antique vacuums, mixers and washers are transformed into musical instruments. They form an ensemble that the conductor, harpsichordist and composer Michael Petermann, alias weiserrausch.de, has now completed after eight years of preparation: The Stupid Orchestra.
Because he wanted every machine to have a distinctive sound that the audience could discern in the symphony, he chose appliances designed between 1940 and 1975 (which meant a lot of picking through flea markets, specialty dealers and websites)
