The Vegetable Orchestra is not like any other orchestra in the world. They make their music using instruments made of fresh vegetables.

Founded in 1998 in Vienna, they still go the vegetable market every morning and carve their own instruments. With more than 12 years of experience, they never stop refining their methods of instrument-making.

The Vegetable Orchestra gives concerts all over Europe and Russia, and has a broad musical range, including beat-oriented original soundtracks, experimental electronic music, free jazz, noise, dubbing and Clicks’n’Cuts. The sounds and type of music they play varies according to what vegetables they find on the market, as do the instruments they make and use.

Their latest album, Onionoise, can be purchased from Transacoustic or downloaded on iTunes.

    Talk about green music…after you are done playing the onion rings, you eat them. Bravo!
