Featured here are the first two instruments of the "Rockin' Renovation"by Being:Art at the Memphis Botanic Garden's My Big Backyard. The two featured instruments are the "Wrench-a-phone" followed by the "Mixing Bowl Bells".
Our intention with this project is to show that music can be found in many places, often unexpected places; and closer to home than one might imagine. Both instruments are purposely designed using commonly available household materials.
The "Wrench-a-phone" consists of a set of 25 wrenches, weather stripping, screws, electrician's tape, and a simple wooden frame. The "Mixing Bowl Bells" consist of 10 stainless steel mixing bowls, foam padding, screws, and a simple wooden frame.
We'll be installing several more pieces over the next couple of months so watch for more videos and if you can get to the Botanic Garden try them for yourself!
